A FEMALE passenger suffered a fatal cardiac arrest and died suddenly while in mid-air as she travelled from the US to the UK on Wednesday, October 5.

UPDATE 1.03 pm (October 5) – The female passenger died suddenly after suffering a cardiac arrest as she flew from Houston Airport to London Heathrow.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson told The Sun: “We were called at 6:33 am today to reports of a passenger having suffered a cardiac arrest on board a flight due to arrive at Heathrow Airport Terminal 2.

“We sent two cycle paramedics and an incident response officer. Sadly, a woman was pronounced dead at the scene.”

ORIGINAL 12.08 pm (October 5) – A passenger died suddenly on board a plane travelling from the US to the UK on Wednesday, October 5.

The passenger died suddenly on a plane from Houston in the US to Heathrow Airport in the UK at around 7 am.

According to early reports, emergency crews were called to meet the plane when it landed, however, the passenger had already been pronounced dead during the United Airlines Flight UA880 flight, as reported by the Sun.

No further information has been released at this time.

The passenger’s sudden death in mid-air comes after a British man died suddenly on board a plane travelling from the UK to Cyprus on Wednesday, September 28.

The British man was travelling with his wife from the UK to Paphos when he died suddenly while on board the plane.

The wife of the 63-year-old alerted the flight cabin crew that her husband had lost consciousness, who made arrangements for emergency services to meet the plane once it had landed.

However, despite being rushed to Paphos General Hospital, the man was pronounced dead on arrival.

“We can confirm that he passed away during the flight but at the moment there’s not much more we can say,” a police source told the Cyprus Mail.

A few months prior, a man died after suffering a medical emergency on Jet2 flight LS134 from Spain’s Malaga to Glasgow on Thursday, May 5.

The passenger flight from Spain to Scotland was forced to squawk 7700, which immediately alerts all air traffic control facilities in the area that the aircraft has an emergency situation, and was diverted to Nantes Atlantique Airport in France.

A spokesperson said at the time: “Flight LS134 from Malaga to Glasgow diverted to Nantes last week due to a customer requiring urgent medical attention.

“Regrettably, we can confirm that the customer sadly passed away.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the customer’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”

On September 18, the pilot of a Boeing aircraft died during a flight from Novokuznetsk to St Petersburg in Russia.

The Boeing pilot died suddenly on board the plane before being able to receive medical attention after the co-pilot was forced to make an emergency landing at Omsk airport.

The tragic incident happened at around 7.40 pm (Moscow time).

An ambulance team arrived 10 minutes before the plane landed, but the pilot died on board while it was still in the air.

The man felt unwell during the flight and as a result, the co-pilot decided to make an emergency landing at the Omsk airport, located in Omsk Oblast, Russia, 5 km southwest of Omsk.

      Autopsy findings are the only certain legal documentation that will clear up the diagnosis of “sudden deaths” . this will then be on file for the future should they be able to publish, and/or used by the Courts depending on the outcome!

      Whatever you do NEVER try to link these ‘sudden deaths’ with any experimental trial of dna altering drugs some 4 billion folk have taken part in, these deaths are just coincidences…..
