One of the passengers on the S7 flight from Egypt committed suicide. This was reported to RBC by the airline’s press service.
“On November 22, during the flight S7 6619 Sharm El Sheikh – Samara, one of the passengers went to the toilet after takeoff, where he spent a lot of time, which alerted the flight attendants,” the message says.
The passenger was found unconscious “with signs of suicide,” and the crew made a decision about an immediate emergency landing at the nearest airport – in Cairo. Three doctors flew on the same flight, including the resuscitator, who performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation before the plane landed.
“In agreement with the Russian Consulate in Egypt, the deceased passenger was transported to Samara in the baggage and cargo compartment for transfer to relatives,” the airline said.
The plane took off from Cairo at 11:10 pm local time and landed in Samara at 5:09 am (4:09 am Moscow time).
