Emergency Call

I was listening to Swanwick control at 6.35am yesterday on 132.840 when Easyjet 3869 (Stansted To Alicante) made a 'PAN PAN PAN' call declaring a medical emergency and requesting a diversion to Gatwick. It was then passed to Dover sector on 134.9 and then Timba arrivals on 120.175. The aircraft was descending rapidly and I lost radio contact with it whilst working this sector. Has anybody else heard an emergency call you would like to share with other readers of the site?
