American Airlines co-pilot dies just minutes before landing

An American Airlines flight safely landed after its co-pilot fell ill in-flight and died.

Flight 1353 was only minutes out from Albuquerque when a “medical” emergency was declared over the intercom by the captain. William (Mike) Grubbs had become incapacitated while in the air, and upon landing, he was given CPR for 40 minutes before he was pronounced dead.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Grubbs’ family during this difficult time,” a spokeswoman for American Airlines told the New York Daily News, adding that they were “deeply saddened” by the tragedy.
