Aer Lingus flight bound for US forced to do U-turn after 'medical emergency' on board
The incident happened two hours into flight
An Aer Lingus flight travelling to Chicago had to do a U-turn after declaring a medical emergency on board.
The airplane was two hours into the flight when a decision was made to return to Dublin.
Flight EI-123 had departed from Dublin Airport shortly before midday.
There was 293 guests on board and the flight was subsequently cancelled.
A spokesperson for Aer Lingus said the guests will all be re-booked on flights.
"The flight landed safely at Dublin at 15:30 and the guest requiring medical attention disembarked.
"For operational reasons EI 123 and EI 122 have been cancelled and guests will be re-booked on flights tomorrow, Sunday 30th April. Aer Lingus would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused to guests."
A passenger on board the flight told Independent.ie that some passengers have been put on Monday flights and that they had to wait three hours to get booked into a hotel.
"It was crazy, we were waiting [in the airport] for hours. Most people will be there early in the morning to try to rebook."
