An EasyJet flight en route from London to Crete was forced to divert Friday after the captain become sick. Though his condition is not thought to be serious, the unnamed pilot was taken to the hospital upon landing at Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE).

The occurrence comes the same week as an American Airlines pilot fell ill and died mid-flight, and a United Airlines pilot lost consciousness mid-flight.
