An Emirates flight bound for Germany was forced to divert to Kuwait after a passenger died on board, a report on Gulf News said on Thursday, October 12.
The plane was reportedly heading for Munich last Tuesday but had to make an emergency landing in Kuwait following the d***h of a child in mid-air.
“Emirates can confirm that flight EK049 from Dubai to Munich was diverted on 10 October 2017 to Kuwait International Airport due to a medical emergency,” the Dubai-based airline told the local newspaper in a statement.
“The passenger received immediate medical attention upon landing, but unfortunately was pronounced d**d by an emergency doctor on the ground,” it added.
The airline did not reveal the nationality of the child or the cause of d***h, but said the journey to Munich eventually continued and the plane landed in the German city two-and-a-half hours behind schedule.
“Emirates would like to express its condolences to the family of the deceased,” the statement further said.
