A man in his 50s has died onboard an EasyJet flight from Cyprus to London Gatwick Airport.
Passengers grew concerned when a dark-haired traveller, who appeared to be on his own, wasn’t waking up.
Urgent attempts to resuscitate the passenger using a defibrillator proved unsuccessful.
The flight- EZY8454 – left the Greek island at around 2.20 pm local time, and fear for the man’s health was sparked around an hour and a half into the journey.

When the plane passed over Paris at around 4.30 pm, the captain confirmed that there had been a ‘medical incident’ and asked everyone to treat the dead man with dignity.
Passengers were held when they landed at Gatwick while paramedics boarded the plane and pronounced the man dead.
