Delta Air Lines flight 237 — scheduled to fly from Rome to Detroit — was canceled following its emergency diversion today to London Heathrow.

WWJ in the Motor City reports the 767-300 originally had 217 people aboard. The radio station’s reporter Sandra McNeill says a medical emergency forced the diversion.

Delta has canceled the LHR to DTW leg.

Delta Air Lines flight 237 from Rome to Detroit made an emergency medical diversion to London, where it was eventually canceled.

Wishing best of luck to the ill passenger(s) and those trying to get to DTW.

UPDATED, 12:34 PM PDT:

A woman named Laurie Kelly says she and her husband were on the flight.

She reports a female passenger died on the plane.

This marks the second time in about as many weeks that a passenger has passed away during a Delta flight. A cause of death on this morning’s flight has not yet been released.
