A 30-year-old woman died on a COVID-19 plane, Dallas County officials said Sunday. She was on a flight from Arizona to Texas in July when she died, CBS DFW reported.
The woman had major health conditions that were high risk and officials believe she was ill while in flight, according to CBS DFW. Her death is now categorized as death from Dallas County coronavirus.
“It became difficult for her to breathe and they tried to give her oxygen. It was unsuccessful and she died on the water alley,” District Judge Clay Jenkins said in an interview with NBC DFW.
