yesterday the AF flight from CDG to AUH made an emergency landing at Turkey's capital Ankara. The reason for that was a passenger named Stive Hayoun who was getting worse over Turkish airspace. Even the tries of the FA's didn't help to make his poor health better. So the Captain got into contact with ESB tower to declare an emergency landing.
Around 2am in the night they landed safety at ESB where the ambulance already waited for them. They efforts to help the passenger weren't successful so they only could diagnose his dead.
The result of the autopsy was a toxication with kokain which Hayoun wanted to smuggle inside his body. The doctors estimates more than 50gr. of kokain inside his dead body.

Quoting OHLHD (Reply 5): Quoting Cyba (Reply 2):
I want to feel sorry for the dead man, must take a lot of desperation to carry that much drugs inside of you.
......... or a very lucrative job of bringing it into the UAE! stirthepot
Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Reply 3):
50g is a tiny amount - nobody would risk getting caught for that much. Twice that, maybe, but not 50g.
Definitly. The average is surly higher than 50g!
It's very lucrative, for the dealers. The couriers (in Spanish they are called "burriers" in reference to donkeys) make something like 2 to 5 thousand dollars, very little money compared to the risk. When they get caught, the dealers disappear, obviously, leaving them behind. There are dozens of smugglers that are stuck in Peru, either in jail serving their long sentences or in the country unable to leave. Their passports are confiscated for many years while they are on probation.

Quoting FlySSC (Reply 16): More seriously, this kind of problem usually occurs on our flights CCS-CDG or BOG-CDG ...
ACC, COO and LOS are the rising stars of this drug courriers fashion...as cocaine is now discretely shipped to Africa before being re-sent to the EU.
GRU and GIG and EZE vwere quite infamous for this as well
AF is major on these routes except ACC, and sadly there is no obvious solutions to avoid that
