An ExpressJet bound for Canada returned to O'Hare Airport shortly after takeoff Monday after smoke filled the cabin. One passenger was taken to an area hospital.

Flight 5828, operating as United Express to Ottawa, Canada, was carrying 38 people and three crew members when it declared an emergency and returned because of the smoke, ExpressJet spokeswoman Courtney Madden said.

Paramedics responded about 6:30 p.m. and took one female passenger to Our Lady of the Resurrection Hospital in fair to serious condition, Chicago Fire Media Affairs said.

Passengers were put on another flight that left about 9:50 p.m., Madden said.
