Delta flight lands in Nashville after masks deploy

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Delta Flight headed to St. Louis was diverted to Nashville after the plane's emergency oxygen masks deployed.

Delta spokeswoman Leslie Scott told The Associated Press that Flight 2084 landed at the Nashville International Airport around 2 p.m. Sunday after leaving Atlanta.

She said the 135-passenger plane had a pressurization issue that caused the masks to deploy, and the pilot decided to divert to Nashville to be safe.

Scott said another plane transported the passengers on to St. Louis.
