Medical emergency on Notre Dame football team's flight home

A member of the Notre Dame football team's administrative staff experienced a medical emergency on the team’s charter flight home from Dublin, Ireland. 

Ernest Jones, Notre Dame’s director of player development and engagement for the football team, will remain overnight at Memorial Hospital of South Bend while undergoing further evaluation and treatment for dehydration, according to Notre Dame athletic department spokesman John Heisler.

Jones is listed in stable condition.

Jones became ill and fainted with about two hours remaining on the team's Delta charter flight home, after the Irish beat Navy 50-10 earlier in the day. The flight landed at Michiana Regional Airport about 11:50 p.m. Saturday and Jones was transported to Memorial at that time.
