A woman claimed on Twitter that a man on her flight died from coronavirus while in the air.
The Twitter user known as Jo LaFlame tweeted Monday night about the alleged incident.
“The man behind me on this flight. DIED. OF COVID. MIDFLIGHT. I have so many questions,” she wrote.
“& we finna continue this flight. On the SAME CONTAMINATED ass plane. Wet wipes *better* save the day this time. Bc I’m shook,” she added.
Within hours the tweet went viral and now has over 20k retweets.
People in the replies were skeptical, and Jo LaFlame claimed in the mentions that the man’s wife told responding EMTs that he had tested positive for Covid-19.
She claims that the flight was diverted, but the passengers didn’t switch planes.
