TYUMEN, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. According to preliminary reports, deterioration of health of a passenger caused an emergency landing of an airliner in Russian Siberia’s Tyumen airport Roshchino, the press service of the Ural transport investigation department of the Russian Investigative Committee reported on Tuesday.
“According to preliminary reports, a 28-year-old passenger on Novosibirsk-Moscow flight had some health problems. The airliner has made an emergency landing at the Tyumen airport for medical aid to him,” the press service said.
An inquiry prior to investigation is underway. A procedural decision will be taken upon results of the inquiry.
The expertise did not find alcohol in the blood of the passenger that caused the airplane to land, head of information and public relations department, Major of Interior Service of the police transport department in the Ural Federal District Yelena Epimakhova told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday. In her words, an expertise for drugs in the blood of the passenger will be finalized soon.
“We have received a report from the airplane’s crew over violation of public order onboard the airplane. No passengers have made any complaints,” Epikhamova noted.
Overnight to April 1, the airliner Boeing-737 on Novosibirsk-Moscow flight has made an emergency landing at Roshchino airport. The decision for emergency landing was taken by the crew, because a passenger locked himself up in the toilet room and did not go out from there for around an hour. The emergency landing passed as scheduled.
“After the landing of the airplane transport police have taken a passenger from the Siberian city of Novosibirsk born in 1986 off the airliner and sent him for a medical examination. The airliner departed for its destination place according to the initial flight after refuelling,” Epikhamova said, noting that information about an act of hooliganism onboard the airliner was not confirmed.
