UA 895 05/11/06 What Happened?

Fri May 12, 2006 3:23 pm

While I was at work today at ORD, I saw a couple of fire trucks and ambulances racing to runway 27L about 3:30 p.m. Apprently United 895 a B744 was enroute ORD to Hong Kong. About a hour into the flight, it declared a emergency and returned to ORD. I am just trying to figure out what went wrong and why they didn't divert to MSP for example. Any help on this would be greatly appriciated.
