Brazilian who died on flight to Dublin was smuggling cocaine

Mr Santos Gurjao was travelling from Lisbon to Dublin on Sunday afternoon on board Aer Lingus flight EI 485 when he took ill and became agitated about an hour into the flight.

A doctor and two nurses performed CPR on him as the flight diverted to Cork Airport and HSE paramedics also worked on him on arrival but he was pronounced dead a short time later.

A postmortem on Monday at Cork University Hospital by Assistant State Pathologist Dr Margaret Bolster confirmed that Mr Santos Gurjao had ingested up to 100 pellets which were subsequently found to have contained 0.8 kilos of cocaine with an estimated street value of €60,000.

    It’s a pity pellets don’t burst in the stomachs of all drug smugglers.
