SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The Spokane Fire Department says the 16-year-old boy who died on an airplane was with a military family traveling from Seattle to Atlanta for Christmas.

The Delta Air Lines flight diverted to Spokane Saturday when the teen suffered some kind of medical emergency.

Attempts to revive him on the plane and by medics on the ground were unsuccessful.
