(PIX11) -- Did a Southwest passenger die because he was too hairy?

According to a TV station in Albuquerque, 62-year-old Jack Jordan had a heart attack on board a flight, but flight attendants did not use a defibrillator on him right away because they thought his chest was too hairy.

Eventually his chest was shaved and the device was hooked up. Unfortunately, by that time it was too late. The man could not be resuscitated.
