NEWARK - A 23-year-old Newark woman traveling alone aboard a flight from London to Newark Liberty International Airport died during the flight, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed around midnight Monday.

The medical examiner and police arrived when United Flight 115 from Heathrow landed around 9:51 p.m. Monday to make the pronouncement.

A doctor attempted to assist the woman during the flight, a source said.

The woman reportedly had pre-existing medical problems, Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo said in an email.

United Airlines did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Tuesday morning.

No additional information was immediately available early Tuesday.
