Man Bites Another Passenger On Flight Just Before Collapsing And Dying

Airline food is obviously dog crap, but human flesh? It's probably not so bad.

Fans of this theory include one Brazilian man who collapsed and died after reportedly biting a fellow flier on Sunday evening's Aer Lingus flight to Dublin.

The flight departed from Lisbon, Portugal but was diverted to Cork, Ireland after the incident, FOX News reports.

Crew members apparently handcuffed the 24-year-old before he unexpectedly passed out, and a nurse and doctor aboard the plane were unable to revive him. Upon landing, paramedics pronounced the man dead.

In an interview with 96FM, passenger John Leonard claimed the man's health and disposition declined after he was handcuffed.

He reportedly said,

His seizure seemed to get worse. He was actually on the ground shaking violently. The noise he was making was like something I have never heard before. It's not something you'd hear every day. It was like deep anguish, is the best way I could describe it… Not screaming in a sense… just a very guttural, from deep within him.

A 44-year-old Portuguese woman accompanying the biter was allegedly arrested when Cork police found five pounds of potential amphetamine powder in her luggage.

To specify whether or not the man was under the influence of any illicit substances, a postmortem examination will be conducted Monday.

The bite victim was treated at a Cork hospital, and the remaining passengers and crew continued to Dublin via bus.
