Flight Diverts To Bermuda After Man Dies

May 26, 2022

A flight that was traveling from Ghana to the United States diverted to Bermuda after a tragedy struck mid flight, with a passenger dying,

The Graphic Online website said, “Gospel artist Daniel Toffey Jr, who has roots from the Jomoro area in the Western Region of Ghana but resides in the United States of America, had come to Ghana with his father and mother to attend the funeral of an in-law.

“The mother stayed behind while Daniel and his father, also Daniel Toffey Sr. took the lead back home to Pataskala, Ohio – a suburb of Columbus in the USA. They left Accra on Sunday night, May 22, 2022.

“But unfortunately, tragedy struck on board United 997 while in the middle of the Atlantic when the young Daniel died in what is suspected to be a case of pulmonary embolism. A pulmonary embolism [PE] is a blood clot that develops in a blood vessel in the body [often in the leg]. It then travels to a lung artery where it suddenly blocks blood flow.

“A report by Dntghana said Daniel Junior died as his father Daniel Toffey Sr. looked on helplessly – in flight.

“The flight took off from the Kotoka International Airport around 11pm on Sunday and was scheduled to arrive at Washington Dulles early on Monday.

“But as a result of the tragic incident, the flight was diverted to Bermuda where all 178 passengers were lodging at Grotto Bay Resort pending their continued travel to Washington.”
