Emergency landing for Southwest Airlines

A Southwest Airlines flight, Flight 1694, departing from Hartford to Tampa, was forced to make an emergency landing back at Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport due to a cabin pressure related-injury. Several passengers had complained about feeling pain and discomfort, with more than one passenger reported to be bleeding from their ears.

“Several customers among the 139 on board are being treated for injuries and discomfort by local paramedics,” the airline said in a statement. “We have removed the aircraft from service and will accommodate those wishing to continue their travel with another aircraft.”
