aer lingus plane 700x462 - Passenger who died after biting man on Aer Lingus flight had 2 lbs of cocaine in stomach

Over the weekend, a strange story made the rounds regarding an Aer Lingus flight from Lisbon, Portugal to Dublin, Ireland. A man bit a passenger, then later was pronounced dead after the flight had diverted to Cork.

We now have more details of what caused the man to go through such a horrific death. According to the Irish Times, nearly 2 lbs of cocaine was found in 80 packets in the stomach of 24-year-old Brazilian John Kennedy Santos Gurjao. One of the packets burst, causing the man immense pain, eventually leading to his death.

via the Telegraph:

Mr Leonard told PJ Coogan’s Opinion Line on Cork’s 96fm that two nurses and a doctor tried to resuscitate the man.
The captain of the flight had asked if there were any medics on board.
“After that it got worse I would say, his seizure seemed to get worse. He was actually on the ground shaking violently,” Mr Leonard said.
“The noise he was making was like something I have never heard before.
“It’s not something you’d hear everyday. It was like deep anguish is the best way I could describe it, very, very troubled. Not screaming in a sense you know if you’d hurt yourself or something, just a very guttural, from deep within him.”

The man who was bitten was apparently trying to restrain the overdosing passenger, who was being struck by seizures.

What a terrible way for someone to die. It sounds like those on board the Aer Lingus flight did everything they could to try and save him, but given the amount of cocaine that was entering his system, it was an impossible task.
