A 7-month-old Saudi boy died of heart failure on board a domestic flight in the Gulf kingdom just before the aircraft landed, a newspaper reported on Monday.

The baby and his mother were aboard a Saudia flight from the capital Riyadh to the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah when his heart suddenly stopped, Sabq said.

“Doctors said the baby was suffering from a congenital heart defect. They were waiting for him at the airport but he was already dead,” the report said.
