Some nervous moments for the passengers of a United Airlines flight headed from Houston to Seattle Thursday night.  

The plane had to make an emergency landing in Boise, Idaho, after a crew member suffered a heart attack.

A cabin announcement woke some of the pasengers of United Flight 1603, telling them they would make an unscheduled stop in Boise, Idaho. 

It didn't take long for word to spread through the cabin that the pilot had suffered a heart attack. 

But, passengers were quick to help out. 

The flight made it safely to its final destination, and the pilot who suffered the heart attack was later pronounced dead.
