A 70-year-old woman died of natural causes early Thursday while flying home to Chicago from Japan.

Patricia E. Moy, who lived in the 300 block of West 27th Street, was pronounced dead at 3:15 a.m. on JAL Airlines Flight 010 from Narita, Japan, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Doctors aboard the flight tried to tend to the woman after she went unconscious, but she was pronounced dead on the plane, according to a statement from the airline.

“Japan Airlines expresses its deepest condolences to the passenger’s family and loved ones, and the airline also sincerely thanks the doctors who responded,” the statement said.
