A passenger died on an AirTran Airways flight from Las Vegas to Milwaukee early Saturday, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing at Denver International Airport.

DIA airport spokeswoman Laura Coale says flight 776 was diverted to Denver and was met at the gate by an ambulance at about 2:50 a.m. Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said the death appeared to be of natural causes.

The airplane continued its flight to Milwaukee at about 6:30 a.m.

AirTran spokeswoman Quinnie Jenkins says the deceased passenger is a man. She declined to release details, including age, how far into the flight the death happened, or how the man's death was discovered.

Jenkins says DIA was the closest airport where the plane could land.
