A man from New York died of an apparent heart attack 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.

The Denver Medical Examiner's office says 64-year-old Stephen Enves, of Elmhurst, N.Y., was traveling with his wife when he died. An autopsy is planned.

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

AirTran spokeswoman Quinnie Jenkins says DIA was the closest airport where the plane could land. She declined to release additional information.
