Indian, 55, dies after heart attack at Abu Dhabi airport

  • Father of two was to fly with family to Bengaluru

Abu Dhabi (Gulf News): An Indian man died after suffering a massive heart attack at Abu Dhabi airport before he could board a flight to Bengaluru in the early hours of Monday.


George Philip, 55, who worked for a trading company in Dubai, was waiting at the e-Gate counter along with his wife and two children when he collapsed, a family friend told Gulf News.

Apparently, Philip, who hailed from Kerala, had felt an uneasiness and mild chest pain before leaving for the airport from his apartment in the capital. “He ignored it and took a taxi to the airport because they had already checked in online.”

The family was flying for the educational purposes of their children. “His daughter was supposed to attend an orientation for her higher education in law in Mysuru on Tuesday. His son, who is already studying law over there, was here for a visit during his vacation. His classes resumed today.”

The friend said the airport medical staff gave first aid and performed CPR. “It was a massive attack and they had to rush him to Al Mafraq Hospital. But, he did not survive.”
