BANGOR — An airplane en route from Amsterdam to Minnesota was diverted to Bangor International Airport because of a sick child on board.

Airport Director Tony Caruso tells the Bangor Daily News that the Delta Airbus had 238 passengers on board when it landed in Bangor a little before noon Friday. The flight resumed at 12:45 p.m., after the child and his mother were taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor by ambulance.

The plane was scheduled to arrive at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport two hours later than originally scheduled.

State health officials say it was not clear what had made the child sick. The child’s believed to be 4 or 5 years old.
