Continental Airlines flight 84 medical diversion to Athens

Continental Airlines flight 84 from EWR (Newark, New York) to TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) had to divert to Athens due to a passenger having a medical problem. The flight was operated by a Boeing 777-200 registered N78009. The flight passed over Athens at 11:10L heading to TLV cruising at FL370. It then turned back and landed at around 12:20L on runway 03R. An ambulance was waiting at the stand and took the passenger to hospital for further exams and treatment. The plane departed around 13:30L heading to TLV.
