HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities say a Saudi woman who was traveling by plane to Houston from Qatar to seek medical treatment died en route.
The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/13Zl5KF ) reports 49-year-old Fatimah M. Alsiari, a Saudi Arabian citizen, was onboard a nonstop flight from Doha, Qatar when she died.
Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva says the Qatar Airways flight landed at George Bush International airport about 4:30 p.m. Friday.
A physician aboard the plane tended to Alsiari but could not help her. It was not known if the doctor was accompanying her.
It was not immediately known what condition the woman had or which hospital in the Texas Medical Center she planned to visit.
Silva said Alsiari apparently died of natural causes but an official determination will be made by a medical examiner.
