A Southwest Airlines flight traveling from Las Vegas to Philadelphia diverted to Indianapolis Saturday afternoon due to a warning light.
Flight 5913 was headed to Philadelphia when the pressurization indicator light turned on, according to a Southwest Airlines spokesperson. The spokesperson said the flight never actually lost pressure however.
"My head was just going in and out and my ears were really hurting but they got us on the ground," Terry Walker, one of the passengers, told NBC10.

No one needed oxygen masks during the incident, according to the husband of another passenger.
The flight landed safely at Indianapolis International Airport as a precaution. No serious injuries were reported.
"We had a couple of people taken out by ambulance because of anxiety attacks," John Pocino, one of the passengers, told NBC10.
The passengers were accommodated and arrived in Philadelphia around 9:30 p.m. The diverted flight will undergo a maintenance review.
The incident occurred a little more than a month after a Southwest Boeing 737 made an emergency landing in Philadelphia following a mid-flight engine explosion that blew out a window. A woman on the aircraft died after she was partially sucked out of the window.
In response to the explosion, the FAA ordered hundreds of similar Boeing 737 engines to be inspected. Under the April 20 order, all CFM 56-7B engines that went through at least 30,000 takeoffs or landings had to be inspected within 20 days.
