Neil Armstrong, the Apollo 11 astronaut who became the first person on the moon, has died at 82.

In a statement, Armstrong's family said the internationally known icon had died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures.

The family described Armstrong as "a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job," CBS News reported.
