A Southwest Airlines plane traveling from Las Vegas to Milwaukee was diverted to Denver Friday night because of "a pressurization issue," according to the Denver International Airport.

Upon landing at the new destination, some passengers of flight 100 requested medical attention and were met by ambulances, but only one passenger needed to be transported to the hospital due to a "slip and fall," according to a statement from the airport.

The flight with six crew and 175 passengers landed safely in Denver at 8:30 p.m. local time, according to a statement from Southwest. The airline said the aircraft would be taken out of service to be inspected, and passengers would be transported to Milwaukee on another plane, scheduled to arrive about two hours late.
