The RCMP in Labrador is investigating the sudden death of an elderly man aboard an international flight on Friday.

At around 4:30 p.m., police were called by Canada Border Services agents to the airport in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

A Polish Airlines flight made an emergency landing at the airport during its flight from Warsaw to Toronto.

The 90-year-old passenger, who was a Canadian citizen, died while en route.

An investigation into the death by both RCMP and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner continues.

Police said the death does not appear to be suspicious.
