It's always nice to see Dwyane Wade make a stop in his hometown of Chicago, but this might be a little over the top. Wade and the Miami Heat were forced to make an emergency landing at O'Hare International Airport early Sunday morning when a member of the cockpit crew went into a diabetic coma.


Not what you want hear coming out of the cockpit.


Of course, the world found out via Twitter, with DWade doing the reporting honors - never mind the slip on facts - at his official page:


Hey everyone pray for our pilot. We just had a emergency landing in chicago. He went into a Coma. God bless this man and his family


Turns out is was actually a mechanic on board, not the pilot, but suffice to say it was a bit of a scramble. Miami Heat trainers administered aid as the plane landed and the man, who became ill while in the cockpit, was taken to a hospital for further treatment.


The team was returning to Miami after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 97-84 on Saturday night.


Sadly, Wade could not stay in town to breathe life into the Bulls' playoff push while he was at it. turns out he had to jet for more important things:


Ok taking off to Miami. Gd nite tfam. I need to get some rest gotta go support my homie @andyroddick 2morrow in championship match

The Miami Heat is the best team that worth the win. Such a big team with all wonderful players it holds won’t be more than a big winner. Go Heat, you’re the best!!! If interested in tickets, I recommend Ticketwood.com.
