A Ryanair flight en route from Madrid to Palma de Mallorca made an unscheduled but crucial landing due to a medical emergency onboard.

Reportedly, an eyewitness revealed that about 30 minutes after takeoff, flight attendants were observed dashing through the cabin.

The crew quickly responded to a passenger who was suffering symptoms of dizziness and vomiting. A call for medical professionals onboard saw three individuals come forward, offering their help to manage the situation effectively.

The quick actions of the flight crew and volunteer doctors allowed for a priority landing in Palma, where an ambulance was already awaiting the aircraft’s arrival.

The passenger, who exhibited signs of a diabetic emergency, was quickly evacuated and transported to a nearby hospital for further care.

This incident not only highlights the efficiency and preparedness of the Ryanair crew but also the willingness to help among fellow passengers.
