A flight from San Francisco’s airport to Chicago O’Hare saw three people hospitalized Sunday, Chicago police said.

The United Airlines flight was met by officers at the gate at around 6:02 a.m. after a “disruptive customer” was removed by law enforcement, the airline said in a statement.

The airline added that a flight crew member was taken to hospital for an evaluation.

Police said they responded “for a disturbance that had occurred on a plane.”

Three occupants of the plane—including one crew member—were then transported to Resurrection Hospital for observation. The incident is currently under investigation, police said, and further details were not disclosed.
