Passengers on a scheduled flight from Phuket to South Korea’s capital Seoul made a scary experience when the co-pilot died after suffering from a heart attack in the cockpit.
As the crew Eastarjet flight ZE532 prepared for their 5 hours and 45 minutes trip to Incheon International Airport in Seoul, co-pilot Lim Hyun Soo complained about difficulties breathing.
