PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Port of Portland spokesman says an Alaska Airlines flight bound for Seattle landed Thursday night at Portland International Airport after a pilot apparently lost consciousness.

Port spokesman Steve Johnson tells The Oregonian (http://is.gd/WbrPLU) that Flight 473 landed safely and the crew member was being taken to a hospital.

Alaska Airlines lists the plane as leaving Los Angeles at about 6:40 p.m.

An airline spokesman did not immediately return an Associated Press call for additional details.
