HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

A woman who boarded an American Airlines flight bound for Dallas-Fort Worth from Brazil was pronounced dead on the plane.

Flight 962 from Sao Paulo to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport was diverted to Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston after 6:30 a.m. Wednesday when a medical emergency was reported inside the Boeing 777 aircraft.

After the 25-year-old woman's body was taken to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences to be examined, the flight departed from Bush IAH after 9 a.m. Wednesday and landed at  Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport before 10:30 a.m.

More than 200 passengers and a 14-person crew were aboard the flight when the woman died.

A medical examiner will determine what caused the woman's death, though a spokesman for the Houston Police Department told FOX 26 News that there were no visible signs of trauma on her body.
