Passenger dies while waiting to board flight at Lagos airport
A passenger, Jude Oladapo, on Saturday, October 13, 2019 slumped and died while undergoing boarding procedures at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
The spokesperson claimed that the 44-year-old passenger was about boarding an Air France flight when he suddenly collapsed after receiving news that his wife had died.
According to Joseph, the incident happened at about 5.30 p.m. and the deceased was confirmed dead by Dr Ajayi Olamide of the MMIA Medical Clinic.
Alabi said that the corpse had been deposited at the Air Force Hospital Mortuary.
He said that the police had carried out investigation and confirmed that all necessary security landing procedures were observed.
“There is a standard procedure, which includes an escort vehicle following an aircraft that is landing, which will make it difficult for any invader to approach the aircraft.
“The aviation security officials confirmed that they arrived at the aircraft with its baggage cabin door already opened which might have been due to other factors,” Alabi said. Meanwhile, Alabi also dismissed claims that a Royal Air Maroc aircraft, with registration number CN-ROR was burgled while landing at the MMIA on Oct. 11.
