UPDATE: 6:15 a.m. Friday | The Associated Press is reporting this morning that the person who died was in fact the pilot.

UPDATE: 10:10 p.m. | A United Airlines spokeswoman told the Associated Press that a crew member, not the pilot, had the heart attack that caused a Houston-to-Seattle flight to make an emergency landing in Boise tonight.

ORIGINAL POST | A United Airlines flight from Houston to Seattle landed in Boise, Idaho, tonight after its pilot reportedly had a heart attack in the cockpit.

The co-pilot landed the Boeing 737 safely at Boise Airport, and the pilot was taken to an area hospital, airport spokeswoman Patti Miller said.

The crew and passengers of Flight 1603 are waiting in the terminal while United finds a pilot to fly the plane the rest of the way, she said.

There is no word yet on the pilot’s condition, Miller said.
