United Airlines Plane Diverted after Pilot Suffers "Chest Pains" Mid-Flight

A United Airlines flight from Guatemala to Chicago was diverted to Houston International airport after the pilot reported suffering “chest pains” mid-flight before becoming incapacitated.

According to an internal Houston UAL memo, an emergency was called “for an incapacitated pilot” suffering from “chest pains” before the plane was diverted, CDM Press reports.

The memo said:

“UA Flight 2007 GUA-ORD is diverting to IAH. Declaring an emergency for an incapacitated pilot. Gated at E20. Current ETA shows 1747. Unknown if flight will clear here at this time or just re-crew and go. Will advise when information is available. Pilot reportedly taken to a hospital,” states the UAL Operation Center communication.

According to the UAL file, “Left seat Capt had chest pains. Could not get him out of the seat. Right seater landed.”

Director of Communications, Augusto Bernal, issued a statement to Click2Houston.

“United Airlines Flight 2007 was diverted to IAH. It was diverted for a technical and a medical condition,” said Bernal.

A spokesperson for United Airlines provided the following response regarding the incident:

“United flight 2007 from Guatemala City to Chicago landed safely in Houston (IAH) at 5:39 p.m. to address a medical situation, and is expected to re-depart shortly for Chicago.”

In 2021 United Airlines became the subject of controversy after more than 2,000 employees filed a class-action lawsuit against the airline company over unconstitutional vaccine mandates on religious grounds.

The news comes just days after a British Airways pilot died from a heart attack shortly before he was scheduled to fly from Cairo to London Heathrow.

As The Daily Fetched reported over the weekend, the pilot collapsed in the crew’s hotel foyer, where colleagues performed CPR on him.

Tragically, the pilot died at the scene.

“It has rocked BA. It doesn’t bear imagining if he had suffered a heart attack at 30,000ft,” one unnamed source told The Sun.

Pilot deaths have become more frequent in recent months.

Words you never want to hear when flying: “Can anybody here fly this plane?”
