An Air Arabia Sharjah-Chennai flight made an emergency landing at Goa’s Dabolim international airport on Sunday morning after a 70-year-old woman passenger complained of chest pain. The woman later died of cardiac arrest at a private hospital, an official said.
Airport director K.S. Rao said that the plane landed around 4.30 a.m.
“The plane landed here after the pilot reported that a woman passenger was suffering from sudden pain in the chest,” Rao said.
A spokesperson for Goa Police said the passenger, Leena Abraham, a resident of Coimbatore, died after suffering a heart attack soon after she was admitted to the casualty ward of the Salgaocar Medical Research Centre after being brought in by an ambulance.
