SEOUL, South Korea -- Police in South Korea say a passenger found hanged in a plane bathroom apparently killed himself during the flight.
A police official based at Incheon International Airport said Tuesday the man was found hanging by his belt from a clothes hanger after the flight landed.
Monday's Asiana Airlines flight had departed from Guangzhou, China. The official says the man had worked at a Guangzhou branch office of a South Korean company and was returning home.
The official declined to be identified because he didn't want to influence the investigation.
No suicide note was found. The man was a 43-year-old South Korean.
South Korea's suicide rate is the highest in the developed world.
