Despite efforts from fellow passengers to revive him, a man died aboard a United Airlines flight from Denver to Salt Lake City Sunday, reports indicate.

Flight United

United Airlines spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm confirmed the surprising death of a passenger aboard United Flight 5596 out of Denver on Tuesday.

Passengers didn’t realize anything was wrong with the man, who appeared to be sleeping, until the plane landed ... at which point he was unresponsive.

Jared Noall, a combat medic with the Army Reserve who happened to be on board, assisted in performing CPR until paramedics arrived on the ground.

“I asked, ‘Hey, sir, are you awake?’” Noall said.

“I shook him a bit, trying to see if I could get a response out of him. We checked his throat for a pulse, and it wasn’t there. So we laid him down in the aisle and start CPR.”

Using an on-board defibrillator, Noall and others assisted in providing CPR until paramedics arrived. After an hour an a half, the man was pronounced dead.

The identity of the man, who appeared to be in his 30s, is yet to be released as of Tuesday morning. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
