Brauer, a resident of Stamford Hill in North London, began feeling unwell about 45 minutes before landing in the United States. The crew tried to revive him using an oxygen mask, but his airways were blocked. According to a report on the British news site Jewishnews, the yeshiva student tried to use his inhaler, but it slipped from his grasp and he lost consciousness.
It is possible that the crew was unaware that Brauer, who was on his way to volunteer at a summer camp, was experiencing a severe asthma attack.
