When the crew announced a medical emergency, Turkish Airlines flight #TK801 was roughly four hours into its flight from Istanbul, Turkey, to Bogotá, Columbia.
When the crew established contact with air traffic control, the Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner aircraft was south of Cork. A medical emergency was declared by the crew.
To ensure a landing within weight limits, the aircraft had to dump fuel. After that, airport staff and paramedics met it at the terminal.
However, the passenger was declared dead not long after the plane touched down.
282 people, including the crew, were on board.
