The singer Daniel died of a suspected pulmonary embolism, a blood clot that develops in a blood vessel in the body, often in the leg, then travels to a lung artery, where it suddenly blocks blood flow.
Father's heartbreaking moment
The deceased father looked on hopelessly as his young son passed on the plane. Daniel Toffey Sr recalled the heartbreaking moment his son kept saying he can't breathe.
''He kept saying, ‘Daddy I can’t breathe, Daddy I can’t breathe,'' he told DNT, according to Graphic Online.
Before his abrupt demise, one lady called for doctors to assist after Daniel became shaky and gasped for air.
Despite seven doctors on board, and with tools with which those doctors were ''impressed'' for United Airlines to have on board, Daniel Toffey Junior, suffocated to death on the flight.
The deceased worshiped with PIWC in Columbus North.
