Lufthansa 3432 declared an emergency to Frankfurt control, informing that he had a sudden depressurization and was performing an emergency descent. He told ATC that the oxygen masks had been deployed and requested vectors to the nearest airport.

Frankfurt understood the emergency and instructed him to turn left heading 110 and the closest airport was Frankfurt International 40 miles away from him. At the end, he asked the pilot to confirm the number of people onboard.
