Sixty-two-year-old Indian-origin U.S. citizen Rameshbhai Bhagubhai Patel was immediately taken to the hospital after Delta’s 777-232 Boeing made the landing, but he could not be saved.


The plane continued at 18:20 p.m. after Turkish paramedics received the patient.


Earlier in the day another Turkish Airlines plane flying from Mogadishu to Istanbul made an emergency landing in Istanbul when Mahmut Abdulkerim, a Somali national, had a heart attack on board.


Abdulkerim’s body was taken to hospital after the emergency landing, but he was also already dead.
