An IndiGo flight from Madurai to Delhi was diverted to Indore airport on Saturday night after the health of a 60-year-old passenger deteriorated mid-air, a senior official said.

After the plane landed at Devi Ahilyabai Holkar International Airport, the passenger was taken to a hospital near the airport, where doctors pronounced him dead, he said.

“Based on preliminary information, Atul Gupta (60 years old) who was onboard IndiGo Airlines flight 6E-2088 was bleeding from his mouth and his condition worsened mid-journey,” Prabodh Chandra Sharma, who is in charge of the airport, told PTI.

Due to a medical emergency, the Madurai-Delhi flight was diverted to Indore and landed at the local airport around 5:30 pm.

Gupta was taken from the airport to a private hospital where doctors pronounced him dead, Sharma said.

“According to a doctor who took Gupta from the airport to the hospital, he already had heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes,” Sharma said.

He said the flight departed for its destination (New Delhi) at 6.40pm.

A deputy inspector of the Airport Police said the deceased Gupta was a resident of Noida. He added that his body would be handed over to his relatives after an autopsy.
