(NEWS) — A BRITISH Airways jet has made an emergency landing after both pilots almost “passed out” at the controls.

The drama unfolded shortly after the Airbus A321 plane took off from Heathrow Airport, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported.

The captain and first officer reported they were feeling light headed as the jet climbed at 20,000 feet.

Passengers say they heard the “panicked” captain call a cabin crew member for help.
