Flight makes emergency landing at GEG after toddler suffers allergic reaction

By From staff reports

A Delta flight from Vancouver, B.C., was forced to land in Spokane when a young child on board had an allergic reaction. The girl is recovering.

The plane, which was en route to Salt Lake City, landed at Spokane International Airport at 2:24 p.m., said airport spokesman Todd Woodard. The girl, who is toddler-aged, was responsive. It is uncertain what caused her allergic reaction.

The family declined to have the girl transported to the hospital, and instead are spending the night in Spokane to monitor her condition, Woodard said. The plane took off for Salt Lake City shortly after the emergency landing.
