LONDON (AP) — Dutch airline KLM says one of its pilots suffered a heart attack while taxiing to the runway at Glasgow Airport in Scotland for a flight to Amsterdam.

The airline says in a statement that the crew of the aircraft and a passenger resuscitated the captain. He was taken to a hospital.

The co-pilot brought the plane back to the gate, where ambulance crews met the plane Friday evening. The flight was canceled and passengers were rebooked.
