7700 is general emergency, could be a wide range of things.

Although my money is on Flightradar24 getting that wrong.

Medical emergency could be 7700. Doesn't always mean the actual plane is in danger/trouble
Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....
