SALT LAKE CITY -- Airport officials say they're following up on the death of a passenger flying United Airlines from Denver to Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann confirmed the passenger's Sunday evening death, but declined to release the person's age, gender or name. She says airport police are looking into the incident.

Army Reserve medic and passenger Jared Noall told KSL he heard a man snoring loudly on the plane two rows behind him.

The snoring eventually stopped, but Noall says passengers didn't notice anything was amiss until the plane landed and the man appeared unresponsive.

Noall says he and two others performed CPR until paramedics arrived. The man, who appeared to be in his thirties, was later pronounced dead.

A United Airlines spokeswoman didn't have immediate comment.
