Man dies on Aeromexico flight - after swallowing 246 cocaine packets

A 42-year-old man from Japan has died on an Aeromexico flight from Mexico to Tokyo following a seizure after swallowing 246 packets of cocaine.

The man, identified as Udo "N'' became unwell during the early part of the flight when cabin crew noticed he was suffering from seizures, so they requested to make an emergency landing in the city of Hermosillo, some 2,000 miles north of Mexico City.  Local media reported that other passengers on the jet saw the man convulsing.

Following the diversion and emergency landing, authorities boarded the plane around 02:25 local time on Friday morning and reported the man was dead on arrival. His body removed from the flight by the authorities before it then continued on to Narita Aiport.

In a statement issued by the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Sonora, an autopsy revealed the cause of death was a brain swelling from a cocaine overdose after he had swallowed 246 packets of cocaine.
