Ill man grounds flight A JETSTAR flight from Sydney to Darwin was turned back on Wednesday night after a passenger started vomiting blood during the ascent. Paramedics in hazmat suits met the flight in Sydney about 10.30pm but a Jetstar spokesman said that was standard due to the vomiting. It is understood the mans illness was related to a pre-existing renal condition. A Jetstar spokesman said the passenger presented as gravely unwell about an hour into the journey and the captain made the decision to turn back based on medical advice. After arriving back in Sydney the man, aged in his 50s, was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. There is no suggestion the incident is related to the ebola scare that has seen five US airports introduce extra screening for passengers. Quarantine officials examined the plane and the man, aged in his 50s, was rushed to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. The 140 passengers on board were escorted off the plane and put up for the night in hotels. A Jetstar spokesman said the mans medical condition was not contagious and it was not related to ebola. About an hour out of Sydney there was a decision made to return to Sydney because it was the nearest diversion point and a medical situation had emerged on board, he said. A passenger presented fairly unwell and ill; they were vomiting and we did some investigating and it was determined they had a pre-existing medical condition. We were given advice that in the interest of their wellbeing that we should turn back so they could get treatment. He said it was not contagious or communicable and there was no suggestion it was ebola. Jetstar will fly the 140 passengers out tonight on a flight scheduled for the same time at 8.45pm, which will fly in addition to the existing flight. In coming days, passengers will have their temperatures taken on arrivals at New Yorks JFK airport, Newark Airport in New Jersey, Washington s Dulles, OHare in Chicago and Atlantas Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. By ROBYN IRONSIDE Territorians kings of castle at feeling the serenity IT probably comes as no surprise but Territorians have been ranked the most peaceful people in the country. Our chilled lifestyle has been reflected in results from a new not-for-profit project How Is Australia Feeling? which is charting the moods of the nation in real time. As of yesterday afternoon 50 per cent of NT participants were feeling peaceful, 25 per cent powerful, 20 per cent happy and 5 per cent anxious. South Australia was the saddest state at the same time. Organiser Lee Crockford says the data is only indicative and is designed to get dialogue going about how Australians were really feeling and the importance of mental health. Agoy Yoga owner Emily Dawson said yoga was a popular way for Territorians to destress. Yoga is the journey to inner peace, she said.
