ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.– A flight carrying the Chicago Cubs to Los Angeles was diverted to New Mexico early Friday due to a medical issue on board.
The plane was on its method to California once again within a few hours.
Albuquerque International Sunport representative Daniel Jiron stated the plane landed in Albuquerque around 5:30 a.m. Friday. Jiron says the individual with the medical concern was transferred to a health center, but he did unknown if it was a player.
Jiron states the crew flying the aircraft “timed out” and didn’t have anymore flying time left, so a second crew had to be brought in to take the flight to Los Angeles. He states the aircraft left Albuquerque around 10:30 a.m.
