Incident occurred December 23, 2015 at Corpus Christi International Airport (KCRP), Texas

No passengers required medical attention when an international flight Wednesday made an emergency landing at the Corpus Christi International Airport.

A Delta airlines flight, which departed Monterrey, Mexico, bound for Atlanta, was experiencing problems with the air conditioning. 

The problem caused about six people to feel ill, said Kim Bridger, CCIA spokesperson.

Initially, a call came in for a pressurization problem in the main cabin of the CRJ-900 aircraft, she said.

The airport's public safety division, including peace officers, firefighters and emergency medical services, met the plane on the runway when it landed and helped bring affected passengers into air-conditioned spaces, she said.

The plane contained 71 passengers and four crew members, including a pilot. 

The crew was able to remedy the air conditioning problem and left the airport about two hours later, Bridger said.


CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -   A plane made an emergency evacuation just after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Corpus Christi International Airport.
