ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A United Airlines flight headed from Houston to Seattle had to be diverted to Boise, Idaho Thursday night after a crew member had a heart attack. Passengers stepped in to help, several of them giving the crew member CPR. "There was also a radiologist on board and she was kind of able to take control. I think that the pilot's life is probably owed to her," says passenger Jeff Moehlunbruck. Although several passengers identified the pilot to be the one to suffer the heart attack, a United Airlines spokesperson says it was a crew member. Once the plane was on the ground safely, another pilot took over and the flight eventually made it to Seattle early Friday morning.
