Passenger taken to hospital from Blue Grass Airport

A passenger on an inbound U.S. Airways flight on Thursday night was taken to the hospital after the plane landed at Blue Grass Airport.

The unidentified woman suffered a "cardiac event" on inbound Flight 2445 from Charlotte, shortly before midnight, airport spokesman Brian Ellestad said.

She got off the plane under her own power, he added.

Blue Grass Airport public safety officers met the plane at its gate and then Lexington firefighters took the patient to the hospital.
