    Default gone on a personal emergency;

    Hi,

    I heard a native speaker saying the following sentence. I tried searching the sentence on Google but couldn’t find anything like that. Is it correct English?

    John has gone on a personal emergency; I will fill in for him and answer your questions.

    Thanks,

    MG.
