AN AIRCRAFT flying from Paris to Morocco had to make an emergency landing at Almeria airport due to a passenger needing medical treatment but who could not be saved.

The crew of the plane, of the Transavia airline, alerted emergency services to the situation at around 8.40am yesterday (Monday). They said the 84-year-old was in a critical condition.

The crew of the plane performed CPR in an effort to revive the man for around half an hour before it touched down at Almeria.

Paramedics declared the 84-year-old dead shortly after the aircraft landed.
