Man dies on flight from Malaysia

Chennai: A 22-year-old man who was coming from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Chennai was found dead in an Air India Express flight. The police suspect the person would have been severely ill when he boarded the flight or had a heart attack.
The flight landed around 11.30 at the Anna international airport with 147 passengers on board. Within minutes, every one got down and the crew of the flight went inside to check if someone has been left behind.
The staff found a youngster sitting still with his eyes closed. Thinking that he was sleeping, they tried to wake him up. When he failed to respond, they thought he was unconscious and alerted the airport officials.
A medical team was pressed into service and after some moments the doctors declared him dead. It is suspected that he died just minutes after the flight took off from Kuala Lumpur.
The police identified the deceased as Kannabiran Balakrishnan from Chidambaram in Cuddalore. He had gone to Malaysia looking for employment. He got a job, but as he did not like it, decided to return to his village.
On Monday morning, he boarded the aeroplane from Malaysia. According to the police, during the flight he asked the cabin crew for some water. There was no one sitting next to him and he was travelling alone.
” …The body was handed over to the state police,” said an Air India official.
