It was reported that several medical teams responded to a "seriously ill" woman on the tarmac and despite first responders performing CPR on Ms Dyrmishi, it was confirmed that she had "no pulse" and had sadly passed away.

A post-mortem concluded that her cause of death was sudden adult death syndrome.

References to how much the 24-year-old enjoyed her work were plastered all over her social media account, with one aerial view image of a city accompanied with the caption "that's why I love my job" beside a heart-eyed emoji.

There is an aviation theme to her account, showing pictures of many planes as well as her dressed in her uniform and spending time with colleagues.

What is sudden adult death syndrome?

Sudden adult death syndrome is when an individual under the age of 40 dies suddenly without an explanation of what caused the death, despite an autopsy being carried out. It is unknown how, but the syndrome causes the heart to go into cardiac arrest before the individual stops breathing and loses consciousness.

Many health professionals believe it is caused by an irregular heartbeat or a condition that interferes with the heart's electrical circuit, however, it has been difficult to identify as deaths among casualties are very different.
