A female passenger has died aboard Etihad Airways flight EY151 travelling from Abu Dhabi to Chicago, USA on Wednesday.
The female passenger, whose name and age have not yet been identified, passed away on flight after reportedly suffering from undisclosed health issues.
Etihad Airways states that “flight EY151 from Abu Dhabi to Chicago was diverted to Moscow today (30 March 2016) due to a medical emergency involving a female guest, who passed away despite attempts by medical teams to revive her."

The airline noted that it would ensure that all remaining passengers are placed on the earliest possible flights to Chicago, the original destination prior to the incident.
