A flight attendant who traveled from New York to Israel has died from complications from measles.
Officials say the 43-year-old slipped into a coma back in April after suffering inflammation of the brain.
It happened after a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv.
She was reportedly vaccinated as a child, but only received one dose.
Health officials do not believe she spread the virus to anyone on the flights.
Meanwhile, the measles outbreak in the U.S. continues to grow.
Officials say there are now 1,182 confirmed cases in 30 states.
Rockland County has seen 290 cases since the outbreak began last October.
