Spotters FM claims single pilot landing due to incapacitated skipper. Hope he/she is OK.

All aircraft put into the hold and asked how much holding time they had and where their alternate would be. Then allowed visual approaches as the Q400 was in the protected zone for the ILS.
Hope skipper is ok and top job by ht e F/O, sounded a little shaken on the radio and understandably so !
