A plane from Hawaiian Airlines had to land in San Francisco on Friday when one of the cabin crew died, probably from a heart attack.
The plane was on its way from New York to Honolulu with 253 passengers and a crew of twelve when the man died, five hours after the plane took off from New York.
Doctors who were on board gave the man first aid, but they could not save the man’s life. He had been employed by Hawaiian Airlines for 31 years, according to the company’s spokeswoman Ann Botticelli.
Passengers were sent on with other flights from San Francisco.
