An United Airlines flight from Des Moines to Denver was diverted to Omaha Monday night after the pilot passed out at the controls.
United spokeswoman Karen May says Flight 1637 was on its way to Denver on Monday night when the decision was made to set down in Omaha. The co-pilot landed the Boeing 737 without incident just after 9 p.m., and May says the pilot was taken to a local hospital.
May says United put up the passengers overnight in Omaha, and they're scheduled to complete their travel later Tuesday. May says there were 154 passengers and six crew members aboard the original flight.
May said Tuesday that the captain "is OK.'' She wouldn't provide other information.
