An American Airlines flight that left Philly Monday evening was forced to make a landing in Boston shortly after takeoff, 6ABC reported.

American Airlines flight 722, which left Philadelphia around 9:00 p.m., was on its way to Dublin when it was diverted to Boston.
According to WCVB, a local news station in Boston, “Officials first said the cause of the diversion was an unruly female passenger who had to be restrained, but officials are now saying it was a medical situation.”
The woman was immediately taken to a local hospital. She faced no charges.
In response to a concerned tweet regarding the status of the flight, American Airlines wrote:
“We’ll be letting someone off the plane in BOS, and we’ll have you on your way.”
