A Qantas freight Boeing 737-300F registered VH-XMO operating QF7335 from Brisbane to Melbourne declares Pan and Mayday over southern New South Wales after reportedly losing cabin pressure in the cruise. The aircraft made an emergency descent to 8000ft and diverted to Canberra, both pilots were reportedly feeling unwell presumably due to hypoxia. During the later stages of the approach into Canberra the Captain mentions to ATC that the FO is incapacitated, the aircraft makes a normal landing and is met by emergency services. The ATSB are investigating, news article below:

All the controllers in this clip are really great, but that second last guy was absolutely fantastic.
