Friend is on this flight, another male passenger had a heart attack and died, plane made a rapid descent into Denver, poor fellow didn't make it. And, apparently, since the passenger died, the plane can't leave Denver, and the remaining passengers are stuck in Denver for several hours until WN can figure out another plane or flight plan for them.

Sad situation, my thoughts are with the man's family and friends.

I thought they always avoided pronouncing people dead on the aircraft so issues like that didn't happen. Like instead they wait until the passenger is brought out onto the jetway.

Nobody is suppose to "die" while on board an aircraft. Unless there was a doctor onboard an aircraft, nobody onboard is legally qualified to pronounce a person dead. If a person is pronounced dead while in an aircraft, it becomes a crime scene and police must investigate and hold all of the other passengers. Many airlines tell their employees that a person only dies once they are out of the aircraft and on the jetbridge to avoid the whole crime scene deal.

Fret not; SWA367 BNA-LAX is flag-stopping DEN to pick-up 1205's passengers, all within a "couple" of hours (and not "several")...

367 will be landing in DEN in about :10 minutes...
