A heart­break­ing inci­dent occurred on a Qan­tas flight from Mel­bourne to Del­hi on June 20, 2024, when a young aspir­ing chef trag­i­cal­ly passed away just before the plane’s takeoff. 

The vic­tim, 24-year-old Man­preet Kaur, was return­ing to India to see her fam­i­ly for the first time in four years, but nev­er made it to her destination.

Accord­ing to Kau­r’s friend, Gur­dip Gre­w­al, the stu­dent had report­ed­ly “felt unwell” hours before arriv­ing at the air­port, but still man­aged to board the flight with­out any issues. 

How­ev­er, when Kaur went to put on her seat­belt, she sud­den­ly fell to the floor and “died on the spot.” The plane was still attached to the gate in Mel­bourne when cab­in crew and emer­gency ser­vices rushed to help her.

Kau­r’s room­mate, Kuldeep, revealed that the young woman had been work­ing at Aus­tralia Post while study­ing cook­ery, with dreams of one day becom­ing a chef. “She was kind and hon­est,” Kuldeep told the Her­ald Sun, adding that Kaur loved to trav­el with her friends around Victoria.

A GoFundMe page has been cre­at­ed to sup­port Kau­r’s fam­i­ly dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time. “Our dear friend Man­preet left us too soon, leav­ing a void in our lives that can nev­er be filled,” the page reads. “As we grieve her pass­ing, we want to come togeth­er to hon­or her mem­o­ry and sup­port her fam­i­ly in their time of need.”
