Sorry for this late news, Hope the passenger who died Rest In Peace
Apparently this happens quite often
Seriously? You’ve heard of this happening before?
I swear the initial report stated that he slipped into a coma mid flight, I think that was before the heart attack statement came out but not sure.
Not aboard , mostly it happens in the terminal, after them have left the plane…
Most reasons are age, combined with a coagulopathy and a thrombosis …leading to an full grown Lung embolus…what sadly can cause dead, up to how big the actual thrombus was…
In that case☝️ Could be an heart attack…what leads us back to our friend the thrombosis
Yes if you watch ultimate airport Dubai it says that it’s quite common
From some sources, The Victim died Because of Heart Attack
I feel so sorry for the family, having their family member deceased on the floor of the plane for an hour according to the news story. That’s just tragic.
Yes it is quite in humane especially if the plane is full and there are no seats to put the body resulting in leaving it on the floor
Absolutely. A380 right? that’s a lot of people all around your deceased family member. Just so sad.
Well, from my personal experience level as a paramedic, who worked at a big international Airport, some of these are prevented by giving medications on heparin (Anticoagulant) base before the flight…or decompression socks…most of these patients are aware of their conditions, but these mostly happens on very long flights…Cause of the lag of movement, dry air and the siting position…but you dont have to worry, as a young healthy person you aren’t in great danger to catch a thrombosis and, mostly them are not fatal…but it happens…
This is indeed sad! We hope the passenger RIP!
this is sad. I feel for the family who had to go through this.
@anon43874684 I come from a FF/EMT-B job also! My medic taught me a lot about the different meds. After all this is America, you can’t forbid someone from flying as a passenger. The lack of movement totally makes sense. Clots get knocked loose and find their way into dangerous places. I switched to salads recently to ensure my health, and to get ready for the bare bones pay of the regionals :-D
Yes, when They made an emergency landing, the passenger has died :(
Was there any doctors onboard
