A heartbreaking event shook passengers aboard a Lufthansa flight bound for Germany when a 63-year-old man experienced a sudden and severe bout of bleeding from his mouth and nose. The incident, reported by Switzerland-based outlet Blick, occurred around midnight, plunging those on board into a state of shock and horror.
Witnesses Describe Scene of Terror
Martin Missfelder, a passenger traveling with his wife, a nurse, vividly recounted the scene as “absolute horror.” His wife, Karin Missfelder, a nursing specialist at the University Hospital in Zurich, immediately noticed the man’s alarming symptoms of rapid breathing and cold sweats. She wasted no time in recommending that a doctor assess his condition. Despite attempts to alleviate his distress, including the administration of chamomile tea, the man’s health rapidly declined. Martin Missfelder recounted the chilling moment when the man began spitting blood into a bag held by his wife.
Efforts to Save Unsuccessful
Flight attendants sprang into action, attempting CPR for approximately 30 minutes, but sadly, their efforts were futile. The nurse, realizing the gravity of the situation, described the solemn silence that enveloped the aircraft following the captain’s announcement of the man’s passing.
Wife Reveals Husband’s Health Struggles
The deceased’s wife later revealed that her husband had been feeling unwell, possibly exacerbated by their rush to catch the flight. After his passing, his body was moved to the galley, and the aircraft diverted back to Thailand, touching down at 8:28 a.m. Passengers faced a two-hour delay before being rerouted to Germany via Hong Kong.
Reflections and Questions
Reflecting on the tragic incident, the nurse expressed regret for not intervening sooner, despite noticing a doctor attending to the man. She questioned the decision to proceed with the flight given the visibly poor condition of her fellow passenger.
” I should have intervened, but I saw that a doctor was looking after him, so I didn’t want to get involved,” the nurse stated. “The man looked so bad, I don’t understand why the captain took off.”
In conclusion, this harrowing event serves as a stark reminder of the unpredictability of health emergencies, even in the midst of air travel. It prompts reflection on the protocols in place for addressing such situations and underscores the importance of swift and decisive action in saving lives.
