Please people, let's be our brother's keeper on these long flights. Be sure to check on your neighbor and look for signs of inactivity. That might help save a life. Also we all should always try to get up and walk around on long flights for circulation purposes. I know we all can't get up at once but we can use our judgment to find a good time to do it. My 2 cents!!! May God forgive the sins of the departed if any.(Amen)

Guess its heart attack or heart related issue! Probably lost his breath wen the plane was taking off!

I usually have such fear or mild seizure wen i'm inside the plane wen the plane is taking off and landing!

Probably dat was the case!

It was a heart attack, he was a little sickly before he travelled,and was supposed to be coming for some treatment. They are a good family and very God fearing. I pray God gives them the fortitude to bear the loss...

I was on that flight too. The guy's seat was 2 seats behind mine! I did see him walk around shortly after take off, then I slept off. Next tg I heard d Captain's voice saying we would land in Dakar in 30 mins cos we had a medical emergency. The flight crew did all they could bt guess 'twas d man's time. Heard he suffered a Cardiac Arrest. Then the crew asked d passengers behind to come find seats in front cos d flight wasn't full. After re-arranging the passengers, they now wrapped d man up in white cloth. We spent about 3 hrs in Dakar b4 we continued to Houston. Was a very unfortunate incident! I for one was terrified & cldnt sleep thruout the flight. May his soul RIP.

Sorry to ask, but who sat next to the dead body... How did people know he was dead? What was the atmosphere like, cause if I know there is a dead body on the plane... I no go free fly anymore... From Senegal, I'll find my square root..

The Watcher said...

....Maybe he was hypentensive or somthn!

May his soul rest in peace!

Wht ur describing is a panic attack and that cannot cause death, pulmonary embolism is possible tho like Goldie's. RIP

Myocardiac infarction could be the case..

DannyChukS said...

Pulmonary Embolism is the obstruction of the pulmonary artery or one of its branches by an embolus which is usually a blood clot derived from phlebothrombosis of the Leg veins which result in acute heart failure or sudden death..I dnt want to bore you with the medical explanations of the pulmonary Embolism someone mentioned earlier without an explanation..advice* dnt squeez your leg @ a station longer than normal for proper circulation of blood..thanks..
