A United Airlines First Officer lost consciousness mid-flight this morning, one day after an American Airlines pilot died mid-flight.
The plane, which was en route from Houston to San Francisco, was diverted to the Albuquerque International Sunport, where it landed safely at 8:20 a.m.
Officials say the First Officer was unconscious but stable. United Airlines told ABC News that Flight 1614 was diverted when a crew member became ill.
“The crew followed procedures and the aircraft landed safely,” the airline added. “We are working to get our customers to their final destinations.”
