Flight to Detroit makes emergency landing in Milwaukee
Milwaukee — SkyWest Airlines says a flight from Iowa to Detroit made an emergency landing in Milwaukee after a sudden loss of cabin pressure.
SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow told the Journal Sentinel that the plane carrying 38 passengers and three crew members left Cedar Rapids at about 7 a.m. and landed safely in Milwaukee at about 8 a.m. Thursday.
Snow says one passenger was treated at a hospital because of a painful ear. SkyWest had a replacement flight back to Michigan later that afternoon, airline officials said Friday.
Snow said mechanical crews investigated what caused the loss in cabin pressure.
The Federal Aviation Administration is also investigating.
SkyWest is based in St. George, Utah.
