Man, 37, dies aboard flight

A 37-year-old Bermudian man died after he suffered a medical emergency on board a flight to the island.

Police and first responders were called to the airport shortly after 10pm on Sunday.

The man, believed to be a Smith’s resident, was on board a JetBlue flight from New York.

The aircraft cabin crew battled to save the man, who has not been named, and life-saving efforts continued as he was taken to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. But he was later pronounced dead by doctors. Police said: “Foul play is not suspected and identification of the deceased is anticipated in due course once his next of kin has been notified.”
