An American Airlines flight heading from Tucson to Chicago was diverted to Phoenix due to cabin pressure problems.

A passenger on board Flight 1864 also needed medical attention. It's not clear if that was a result of the pressure loss.

The 139 passengers and crew were OK. The person with the medical issue stayed in Phoenix.

After transferring to a different plane, the flight landed in Chicago Wednesday afternoon.
