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.
