SWA838 Divert to KMCI for Medical Emergency
« on: August 06, 2015, 09:46:55 AM »
Greetings!
Can anyone help me find ATC audio of SWA838 from Tuesday 8/4?  About an hour into the flight, there was a medical emergency at the front of the plane (not pilots), and we diverted to KCI.  It's it's not every day you get to go from cruising altitude to touchdown in less than 20 minutes.  Paramedics were on the plane very quickly.  Attendants announced the patient was conscious when they wheeled him out.

Thanks!

Here is a stereo recording covering the SWA838 incident once they checked in with Approach and all the way to the landing and taxi.  Kansas City Approach is on the left channel and Tower/Ground are on the right channel.
