A plane en route to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York made an emergency landing at Wilmington International Airport just before 4 p.m. Sunday.

The LAN Airlines plane traveling from Ecuador was diverted to ILM after a 90-year-old female passenger reportedly suffered from a possible cardiac arrest, Gary Broughton, the deputy director of ILM, said.
