A 54-year-old Malaysian woman died on board an EgyptAir flight from Cairo before it landed at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport Tuesday afternoon.

Airport police were informed of the death at 12:15 pm shortly after the Flight MS 960 of EgyptAir landed. The police were informed that Nik Aziah Binti Nik Yusof died before the landing.

Police checked and found the woman’s body on the seat No 22B. Medical officials checked and did not find any wound or trace of fighting or her body. The body was sent to the Police General Hospital’s Forensic Medicine for an autopsy.

The woman was travelling from Cairo, Egypt, with her 25-year-old son and she was scheduled to make a transit flight at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport to Malaysia.

The son told police that his mother had chronic illness, including high blood pressure, and she was returning home to Malaysia to receive treatment.

The son said his mother complained of stomachache and pain over the body during the flight so he told her to try to sleep. But when the plane landed, he found that his mother has died.

Police will inform the Malaysian embassy in Bangkok to reclaim the body to be sent to Malaysian for religious rite.

A similar incident happened abroad a Nok Air flight from Don Mueang to Chiang Mai on January 17.

A 60-year-old man became unconscious shortly after the flight took off. The captain had to return to land at the Don Mueang Airport. A flight attendant gave him resuscitation but there was no response. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
