Four Crewmembers Receive Medical Attention
crew members aboard an Alitalia cargo flight bound for Miami
received emergency medical attention, following an emergency
landing Tuesday evening at Boston's Logan International
The Boston Herald reports the crew declared the emergency after
a cargo container carrying hazardous materials was breached, and
the crew smelled a strange odor.
The MD-11 cargo hauler was inbound from Milan. It was met by
airport fire crews and a hazardous materials team after a safe
landing about 2150 EDT.
The four crewmembers were monitored for signs of exposure to
harmful chemicals, but none was hospitalized. A public safety
source quoted by the Herald said the crew reported toxic and
flammable substances were on board.
MassPort spokesman Phil Orlandela said fire crews examined the
plane for hazards, and the aircraft was being inspected at the
airport last night for any structural damage.
