Southwest flight returns to Denver after medical emergency

DENVER - A Southwest airlines flight headed from Denver to Houston had to be turned around after a passenger on board suffered a medical emergency.

A spokesman for the airline says the passenger had a seizure shortly after Flight 3107 took off from Denver on Saturday.

Flight attendants worked with an Emergency Room nurse, who happened to be a passenger, to care for the patient until they landed safely in Denver.

The passenger was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
