The audio shows that when the emergency was reported, air traffic controllers never knew it was Prince who needed treatment.

"Hey Chicago Center calling here. We've got an aircraft here who is diverting into Moline at jet-speed 9-90."

"Okay, do you know what about?"

"I don't know, I'm getting details now but they want an ambulance ready. Give me one second. I'll get you some information - I got another guy on the line here. Hey Dan, what's the nature of the emergency, the nature of the condition - male, female, age, anything? Got it. We've got an unresponsive passenger but they're not sure male, female or age... so unresponsive passenger and they need an ambulance."

In response to the emergency call, EMTs were able to meet the jet when it landed at the Moline airport. Within hours, Prince was back in the air, heading to his Minnesota home.
