Passenger death forces emergency landing in Warsaw: airport

An Emirates Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Warsaw on Friday after a passenger became fatally ill, airport officials said, echoing a similar event two weeks ago in Prague.

"Medics boarded the plane after the emergency landing early this morning, but were unable to revive the female passenger," Przemyslaw Przybylski, a spokesman for the Polish capital's Chopin Airport, told AFP.


The Boeing 777 was flying from Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Manchester, England.

"The flight was resumed with the body aboard," he said, declining to provide more details on the passenger's identity or where the body was put.

He added that Polish authorities would not be investigating the case.

Friday's fatality echoes a November 9 case where a female passenger became fatally ill aboard an Emirates flight from Amsterdam to Dubai and the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in the Czech capital, Prague airport officials said.
