According to a news release issued Monday morning, the Notre Dame staff member who experienced a medical emergency on board the charter flight carrying the team home from Ireland Saturday night is back at work.
Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly released more information Sunday afternoon on his colleague.
During a press conference, Kelly told reporters that Ernest Jones, the Notre Dame director of player development and engagement, apparently experienced a reaction to some sinus medication when the plane was still about two hours away from landing last night.
An ambulance was waiting on the tarmac when the team's plane landed to take Jones to the hospital. He was kept overnight for observation and for treatment for dehydration.
Notre Dame Athletic Director, Jack Swarbrick, described the scene on the plane as one of concern when Jones fainted and experienced lightheadedness and an elevated heart rate. Team doctors were on board and tended to Jones until the plane landed.
The team was returning home from a victory over Navy in the season opener at the Emerald Isle Classic in Dublin, Ireland.
