First Published Feb 13 2013 04:55 pm • Last Updated Feb 13 2013 06:13 pm

A Salt Lake City International Airport police report identifies James Edward Levin as the man who died Sunday night on an inbound flight.

Levin died on United Airlines Flight 5596, which arrived at the airport from Denver on Sunday night. The state medical examiner’s office is investigating the cause of his death.

The police report describes how passengers heard Levin snoring, which became "abnormal" toward the end of the flight until it stopped altogether. The woman sitting next to Levin tried to tell him the plane was about to land, but he wouldn’t wake up, according to the report.

The passengers and paramedics tried to revive the man when the flight arrived, but had no success.

The police report does not specify Levin’s age or where he is from, though airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann said the man is not a Utahn.
