Passengers on a flight from Turkey to Moscow had to endure sitting next to a dead body. Not only was the corpse not in her seat, she was lying in the aisle.
The reported cause of death was diabetes, however people with experience say this could not have been the reason.
Her husbaand apparently said she had taken her insulin injection an hour prior to boarding and had therefore not packed any for the flight.
Regardless, it was disturbing for the rest of the passengers for the rest of the trip, seeing her lifelss body covered only with a blanket. This must have been even worse for her husband and any children on board.
People have speculated that staff should have handled the situation better and that there are procedures in place to deal with such eventualities.
The unnamed woman -50 years old - was only 45 minutes into the three-and-a-half-hour flight before collapsing from what has also been deemed heart failure, but with diabetes-related factors.
The airline has also gone unnamed.
