An elderly man has died while a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight was attempting to land at Islamabad International Airport.
The incident occurred in the early hours of Tuesday when PIA’s Islamabad-bound, flight PK-702, was landing at its destination.
The deceased, identified as Abid Hussain, was traveling from Manchester to Islamabad. Doctors said that he died of cardiac arrest just when the flight was touching the ground.
His son was traveling with him who took the dead body home after the due procedure.
In a similar situation, a PIA flight made an emergency landing in Moscow last month when a female patient suffered a heart attack.
The flight (PK-758) was headed to Lahore from London and had to land in Moscow due to the emergency. However, the quick action of doctors saved her life and the flight took off as soon as her condition stabilized.
