A newly married Israeli man travelling to the US with his bride for their honeymoon died onboard an Iberia Airlines flight shortly after eating the in-flight meal.
Nissan Hayuni, 32, was flying to Miami, Florida on Iberia Airlines Flight 6132 from Madrid, Spain Tuesday afternoon when he suddenly stopped breathing and lost consciousness.
Hayuni’s wife says the incident occurred shortly after Hayuni ate the inflight Kosher meal, adding that he may have suffered an allergic reaction to something in the food.
He was pronounced dead by EMS when he arrived at the airport.
Rabbi Mark Rosenberg, the Chaplain for the Florida Highway Patrol and Director of Chesed Shel Emes was at the gate when the flight arrived and has been able to successfully work his way through the many agencies (Local Police, FBI, TSA etc), to have the Niftar released to the local Medical Examiner.
Chesed Shel Emes is working closely with the Medical Examiner and will do everything they can to respect the family wishes of not having an autopsy performed.
When the Niftar will be released he will be flown to israel for a Levaya and Kevura.
