Fears for Brandy After Pop Star Falls Unconscious on Plane
The New York-bound flight returned to the gate at LAX after 38-year-old fell ill.
Singer Brandy Norwood was hospitalized Friday after falling unconscious on a Delta Air Lines flight.
The 38-year-old star was on a plane preparing to leave Los Angeles International Airport for New York when she fell ill at about 7 a.m.
Fellow passengers and airline staff rushed to help her.
"We have a passenger that is not conscious assisted by staff on the aircraft and we would like EMTs at the gate," a crew member can be heard saying in an air traffic audio recording.
When asked the nature of the emergency, a crew member responded: "We just have a passenger who is unresponsive. They can't get her to wake up or anything."
Brandy reportedly regained consciousness after she was removed from the plane.
In a statement, Delta said: "The flight crew… returned to the gate, prior to departure, after a customer fell ill on board. Medical personnel met the flight and transported the customer to a local hospital."
It is not yet clear what led her to lose consciousness.
"The Boy is Mine" singer, whose most recent album was released in 2012, looked the picture of health when she performed earlier this week in Puerto Rico.
She's scheduled to appear at the Ultimate Women's Expo in Atlanta with her mother this weekend.
