Loss of cabin pressure causes emergency landing

HEBRON, Ky. (AP) -- A plane lost cabin pressure and was forced to make an emergency landing at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport, slightly injuring five people, an airport spokesman said.
The Delta 767 landed around 6 p.m. Friday after asking for emergency crews to stand by, according to the spokesman, Ted Bushelman.
"They radioed ahead that they might need ambulances and assistance," he said.
Paramedics treated five people at the scene, Bushelman said. No one was hospitalized.
The plane was in flight between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky and Indianapolis when the crew notified the airport of its intention to land, Bushelman said.
He did not know where the plane had taken off, its destination or how many people were aboard.
A message was left Saturday with the airline.
