How to implement Server Sent Events (SSE) with Slim 3

Server Sent Events allow for a client HTTP connection to receive multiple responses from the server. It basically keeps the connection open and waits for responses.

The PHP examples I've seen online depict a script that is in an infinite loop, checking for updates and if there are then they send a http response back and continue on with the script.

I tried implementing this in Slim v2 and I couldn't keep the app running after sending an http response back. How would I implement this in Slim v3?
