Police probe death of woman, 25, on flight from Brazil to Texas
(CBS/AP) HOUSTON - Police said a 25-year-old female passenger died Wednesday aboard an American Airlines jet that was flying from Brazil to North Texas.
Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said homicide detectives found no signs of trauma on the woman when the plane diverted to George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. An autopsy will be performed.
The name of the female passenger wasn't immediately released.
An American spokesman said Flight 962 left Sao Paolo, Brazil, just after 1 a.m. Wednesday bound for Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The Boeing 777, with 220 passengers and a crew of 14, diverted to Houston due to the medical emergency and landed shortly after 6:30 a.m.
The plane continued on to DFW airport about three hours later.
