An 80-year-old woman who was making Aliyah with her son passed away on EL AL flight 316 from London to Israel. The flight landed last night at Ben-Gurion Airport.
Before the landing, the airplane crew spotted the woman and, believing she had dozed off, tried to wake her up, but soon it became clear that the woman did not have a pulse. A doctor that was brought to the plane upon landing declared her death.
El Al issued a statement confirming that, unfortunately, an elderly passenger flying from London to Israel tonight fell asleep during the flight and did not wake up, as was later confirmed by a doctor who boarded the plane after landing. May her memory be blessed.
