An 11-month-old American boy died after getting off a flight from Qatar to India Wednesday morning.
Qatar Airways says an 11-month-old baby died following a flight from Doha to the Indian city of Hyderabad on Wednesday.
The child, identified as Arnav Varma Alluri, reportedly suffered breathing problems after he was fed during the 4-hour flight.
After the plane had landed, as they made their way to the immigration counter, the parents raised the alarm.
Arnav was immediately rushed to the Apollo Medical Centre, located in the airport, at 2:29 a.m., about 50 minutes after the flight landed, but was declared dead upon arrival.
Officials at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport said that they were yet to determine if Arnav passed away at the airport or on the flight.
Varma was from New Jersey and his father, Anil Varma Alluri, is from Hyderabad.
“We are aware of the very sad news that a young child passed away at Hyderabad International Airport this morning,” Qatar Airways said in a statement.
“Our heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with the affected family,” it added.
