A Chinese citizen died on board of the plane en route from Beijing to Prague. According to the Interfax’s source from emergency service, the pilot asked for landing in Moscow due to the fact that one of the passengers had felt sick.
'The signal from the plane’s commander was received when the plane (that belonged to Hainan Airlines) was near Rzhev. The controllers approved its emergency landing at Sheremetyevo,' the agency’s source said.
According to him, doctors came to the board just after the landing and ascertained the passenger’s death.

But the woman died before the landing,' the source noted.
