Diversion question

I was on LH 638 tonight which diverted to Athens for a passenger who needed medical attention. It got me thinking. Once the airline gives the passenger to local medical personnel do they have any more obligations to the passenger? If the passenger didn't have insurance are they essentially stranded?...

Hi all

This morning just behind EK8 into Heathrow at 7:50 I saw what looked like a 747 just behind it (I think 748). It had some type of lines on the nose. I went on both flightradar and flightaware but couldn't see it which was strange. Anybody know what it is?
