A private plane travelling between Dubai and Singapore was forced to make an unscheduled landing in the Indian city of Chennai on Thursday after a passenger complained of chest pains, according to India’s PTI news.

According to airport officials cited by PTI, medical teams at the scene treated the 48-year old passenger, who was later taken to a local hospital.

The flight continued on its journey later on Thursday.

Although uncommon, flights are occasionally diverted due to medical emergencies or concerns on-board.

In another recent incident, an Emirates aircraft headed to Boston to Dubai was forced to divert to Ireland’s Shannon Airport in October after a passenger became unwell. He was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to University Hospital Limerick.
