...on a flight from Punta Cana to Paris one passenger developed convulsions just one hour into flight.
The 747 was diverted to Martinique and the passenger declared dead prior to arrival by a medical doctor on the plane.
The man most likely was used as narco-mule and had swallowed Cocaine balls-one apparently opened and caused the death..
This example should be publicised all over and serve as warning to those who are inclined to make a quick dime by serving as drug-courrier..

What a rotten business. The narcotics traffickers claim another life. What heartless bastards.

Beaucaire, you're right--this and similar incidents must be publicized clearly and frankly.

Sadly, many of these people are poor, desperate and expendable. For all those that get caught or die there must be plenty of others who make it through or they wouldn't be used.

A spokesman for HM Revenue and Customs yesterday insisted its detection systems were working well. Last year within airports in London and Waterloo international rail terminal 236 "swallowers" carrying £13m of class A drugs were discovered.

But officials concede they have no way of knowing how many people get through and are well aware that persuading or forcing "mules" to carry drugs remains an attractive and relatively risk-free option for the "Mr Bigs" of drug gangs.

Customs say that around one in five people selected by officers and screened are shown to be smuggling drugs internally.

To the Narco-cartells in Columbia a dead mule is just a neglectful entity without serious impact on the overall business.Considering the quantity those people transport (most likely less than 2 Kg..) there must be thousands of them making the trips to Europe each month.
The responsible people in Colombia and Washington know exactly who is pulling the strings and where they are -but instead of moving in and destroy their HQ's ,pull-stringers and infrastructure,one focusses on intercept of dealers and boats into the USA or Euope.
Nobody can tell me certain politicians don't get paid by the narco-princes in Colombia ,Brazil or
Ecuador..
Drugs are simply the biggest business on earth and some have no interest to see it disappear..

Particularly the many government officials who are drug addicts themselves...

May this poor guy rest in peace. He probably didn't think of the consequences he might face if one of those bags would open in his belly, it's always the money who makes them to doing it.

Very very sad!!!

Not always. It can also be threats against his family. Do it: you get paid. Don't do it: we kill your daughter.

What would you do?

Whilst it's sad that someone passed away while trying to make a quick dime, one must bear in mind that the mules are just a part of the process. Dealers are very tricky and have learned to ship massive amounts of drugs. A few examples:

- A submarine was discovered in Mexican territorial waters. It had been built in Colombia and had been carrying 5 to 6 tonnes of cocaine.
- Drug cartels use boats to run the drugs from
- Yesterday TVE (Spanish State Television) showed a report about drug dealers who fly in GA aircraft from northern Africa into Spain and land in open areas. The drug comes all the way up from Central Africa. Interestingly, they showed a King Air 200 which had been stripped of its interiors in order to make more space for drugs. One single airplane will carry what 1000 mules would carry.
