Female Passenger Dies On Board PH-Lagos Flight


A yet-to-be identified female passenger on board Arik Air’s flight from Port Harcourt to Lagos died on Friday.

The passenger believed to be a pregnant woman was confirmed dead by medical personnel on ground at the Murtala Mohammed Airport Domestic Terminal in Ikeja Lagos.

The incident came about 48 hours after another female passenger was found dead inside one of the rest rooms at the international wing of the airport. The deceased was said to be ill and traveling to India for treatment when death came calling.

The lady who died mid-air yesterday reportedly boarded the flight from Port Harcourt in company of her husband and cousin. The cause of her death was yet to be ascertained as at press time.

The incident was however, confirmed by the spokesman for Arik Air, Mr. Ola Adebanji.
