The pilot who flew a plane with 147 passengers suddenly died. He died during his flight from Boston to Phoenix.
The identity and age of the pilot were not disclosed. The American Airlines spokesperson confirmed this story and said that it is really saddening event.
Crew members said that they first noticed that the pilot was incapacitated and afterwards concluded that the pilot was not breathing. This was recorded during crew’s communications with the air traffic control.
The pilot was given immediate medical help by a nurse who was a crew member. Unfortunately, the pilot passed away from an undisclosed illness.
The 147 passengers were not put in any danger because airlines in the United States must have two pilots on board.
