This piece of news had just been released even though it happened back in 17 Nov 2012..

Minutes before an Etihad Airways Kuwait-Abu Dhabi flight was due to land, the 44-year old Omani pilot was unable to speak properly and had difficulty breathing before becoming unconscious mid-flight. The co-pilot took over and declared an emergency, and was able to do a successful emergency landing without injuries/damages in the Abu Dhabi airport. The plane carried 70 passengers and 6 crew members.
