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.
