United Airlines Pilot Passes Out in Flight IAH-SFO

Statistical blip?

A United Airlines co-pilot lost consciousness mid-flight this morning, officials said, one day after an American Airlines pilot died mid-flight.

The plane, which was en route from Houston to San Francisco, was diverted to the Albuquerque International Sunport, where it landed safely at 8:20 a.m, airport spokesman Daniel Jiron said.

The co-pilot was unconscious but stable, Jiron said.

What else? Not even the same kind of event, really, one unconscious but stable, one sadly dead.
