The airport police and the state medical examiner’s office are looking into the cause of death. Gann declined to comment further until the investigation is complete.

The passenger collapsed after the plane arrived in Salt Lake City, said United Airlines spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm, but paramedics could not revive him. Dohm declined to provide further details for privacy reasons.

Gann said the man is not a Utahn, but did not know if he is from the Denver area or if that city was just a stop along his way.
