(Newser) – A Delta Airlines flight headed from Seattle to Atlanta on Saturday was diverted to Spokane after a 16-year-old boy died on board. KREM reports the unidentified boy had some sort of medical emergency only about 20 minutes into the flight. A passenger said the boy was taken to the back of the plane after an announcement about an emergency was made. Some passengers thought the boy might have had a pre-existing condition because he was brought on the plane on a wheelchair. So far, officials say it appears the boy died of natural causes.
