An airplane used by Driscoll Children’s Hospital to transport patients had to make an emergency landing at the Corpus Christi International Airport this morning.

According to CCIA spokesperson Kim Bridger, just before 10 a.m., a  Jetstream aircraft with two people onboard radioed the airport to report hydraulic problems.

Bridger says the plane landed safely and was towed to a hangar for inspection.
