It's more likely to be a diversion after an engine fire/failure I think, but seeing that aviation incidents are in the spotlight lately (sadly) the media will jump on every incident making it sound much more worse..

Quoting FatmirJusufi (Reply 5): Absolutely agree with you. Last years media seems to have a gross influence exaggerating minor air accidents.
Perhaps a valid point (but also maybe not) but, then again, in reality any emergency landing for any reason shouldn't be regarded or played as a "minor air accident". Nothing minor about any flying incident.
