The mystery persists over just what happened on the SkyWest Airlines flight that made an emergency landing last night in Buffalo. The flight from Chicago had been scheduled to land in Hartford, Connecticut.

Passengers passed out, and the pilot quickly descended to a lower elevation. Some believed it was to correct an air pressure problem, but the airline later said there was no air pressure problem. Clive Irving joins Here & Now's Robin Young with the latest on the investigation.
