A MALAGA-BOUND flight was given priority landing after a medical emergency took place on board.

A flight from Glasgow bound for Malaga had to cut its approach route short yesterday, Monday, July 3, after a medical emergency involving a 4-year-old boy occurred.

The crew requested medical assistance for a young child, who had suffered a possible epileptic seizure.

As reported by the Spanish Air Controllers account @controladores on Twitter: ‘The flight crew from Glasgow arriving at #Málaga requested medical assistance on arrival as they were carrying a 4-year-old boy with a probable epileptic seizure’.

‘On board there is also a doctor attending to the little one. Priority. We cut the approach manoeuvre as much as possible and coordinated with the airport management and medical assistance. I hope he recovers soon’. The tweet concluded.
