Tragic Death: Manpreet Kaur Dies on Qantas Flight to India After Falling Ill

Manpreet Kaur, a 24-year-old woman of Indian origin, tragically passed away after boarding a Qantas Airways flight from Melbourne, Australia. Scheduled to reunite with her family in India after over four years, she encountered health issues soon after boarding on June 20. Reports indicate she struggled to fasten her seatbelt and subsequently collapsed on the cabin floor, where she passed away before the flight could take off.

According to news.com.au, emergency services and the cabin crew responded swiftly, but Manpreet succumbed to tuberculosis, a lung disease, which was later cited as the cause of her death. Manpreet had moved to Australia in March 2020 and had been eagerly anticipating her long-awaited trip to New Delhi to see her family.
