Posted On May 7, 2022
Australian cricketer Travis Head and his pregnant partner, Jessica Davies, have been caught up in a scary incident when the plane they were travelling on was forced into an emergency landing.
The couple were on their way home from a holiday in the Maldives when, about 30 minutes into a one-hour flight, their plane started descending, according to an Instagram story posted by Davies, who said the incident was “terrifying”.
“We ended up landing on an island 45 minutes away from our destination,” she wrote in the post.
“After our second landing attempt, we slid off the tarmac into a field.”
Davies also said passengers were locked in a room without water or any means of communication for 45 minutes following the landing, but that after being moved to a “nicer room” and a four-hour wait, a second plane to Male and accommodation was provided.
Davies said the couple are “totally fine” following the incident.
Head is coming off the best season of his international career, after he was named player of the series during Australia’s 4-0 win over England during the summer’s Ashes series.
He also scored 190 runs in the side’s first two ODIs during the recent tour of Pakistan.
Head and Davies announced in March they are expecting their first child.
