The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office released the identification Monday of the 16-year-old boy who died after suffering a medical emergency on a Delta flight.
Zachery Bisiar was with family members Saturday on a flight from Seattle to Atlanta when he went into medical distress. A news release from the Spokane medical examiner said the cause of death is pending, but is thought to be “a rare complication of a rare disease process. The manner of death is natural.”
The plane was diverted to an airport in Spokane, Wash., Saturday, after Bisiar suffered a medical emergency and died on board, according to an official with the Spokane Fire Department.
