Monarch flight ZB970 was forced to make an emergency landing at Gatwick Airport after a male passenger suffered a heart attack approximately halfway through a flight from Birmingham to Malaga on 19 October. A doctor on board the Airbus A321-231 assisted the patient and paramedics were waiting at the Sussex airport before boarding the plane shortly after it landed at 9am. The man was given oxygen approximately 30 minutes into the flight, which made a U-turn over the south of France.
