An Emirates flight from Dubai to Munich was diverted to Kuwait after a child died on board on October 10, the airline said on Wednesday.

“Emirates can confirm that flight EK049 from Dubai to Munich was diverted on 10 October 2017 to Kuwait International Airport due to a medical emergency. The passenger received immediate medical attention upon landing, but unfortunately was pronounced dead by an emergency doctor on the ground,” the airline said in a statement to Gulf News.
