Miami man dies on plane, flight diverted to Va.

NORFOLK, VA Norfolk Airport Authority executive director Wayne Shank says the New York-to-Miami flight landed at Norfolk International Airport shortly before 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The passenger had complained he wasn't feeling well about 20 minutes after the flight took off from John F. Kennedy International Airport. Crew members' efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Shank says the state medical examiner's office will determine what caused his death. He declined to release the man's name, but said he was a Miami resident.
