A Gulf Air flight bound for Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport was diverted to Erbil, Iraq, this Tuesday, November 22, after a crew member suffered a heart attack, but unfortunately there was not enough time to save your life.

As a medical emergency had developed, the pilots made the decision one hour and twenty minutes after takeoff, at an altitude of 34,000 feet (10,360 m). The plane landed safely on runway 36 at Erbil International Airport.
