A Japanese man died on an Aeromexico flight after 246 packets of cocaine – later found in his stomach and intestines – caused his brain to swell.
The 42-year-old started convulsions and hostesses organized for the Boeing 787/8 to be diverted to Hermosillo in northern Mexico.
The flight went from Bogota in Colombia to Narita Airport in Tokyo, with a planned stopover in Mexico City.
It was when the plane left the capital that the man had seizures in the air, causing the diversion to Hermosillo International Airport, where he was reported dead.
