Good luck. We're all counting on you.

They needed someone who could not only save the life of the pilot....but who didn't have fish for dinner
 
2014-01-14 08:59:33 AM  
He must have had the fish.

Flying while having a heart attack?

That's an entirely different kind of flying altogether

There's a medical emergency in the cockpit? What is  it?

"I turned to the co-pilot and I asked her, 'You know how to land the plane, right?' And she said yes,"

Would somebody please tell me what in Sam Hill a woman is doing up there in charge of that ship?

/Well maybe she's got her ship together.

It's the room at the front of the plane where the pilot sits, but that isn't important right now.

Johnny, what can you make out of this?

This? why I can make a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl.

The procedure was going well until the doctor had to perform CPR. As soon as the doctor thumped the pilot's chest, the Air Marshall tased him.

Trivia Jockey: Is this the dude who landed at the wrong airport?


Nah, he had the heart attack after he realized what he'd done.

Or, to translate it into jive, homey's thump-pump done gone had a plaque attack when he got hip to all the shiiiiiat.  Word.

Reminds me of a youtube video where a pilot of a two engine aircraft died of a heart attack, and the passenger, who had limited experience with a single engine managed to land the plane with the help of controllers and a twin engine pilot on the ground...here...let me find it for you.

Also, I thought it was the plucky teenager riding in the back of the plane who had the heart condition.

beerrun: Should have had the lasagna.


My daughter (trauma nurse) was flying from LA to Honolulu when a fellow passenger passed out. The attendant asked for any medical professionals on board and she was the only one, so she went to see what was wrong. The guy was basically dehydrated and my daughter's comment on reviving him was "You should have had the lasagna." That's what happens when you raise a kid on a diet of 70s comedies.

/Airline comped her on the flight

There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

CSB time

On a flight from Calgary to Ottawa, they paged for anyone with medical training - A friend of mine was a nurse and she went to help.  Elderly woman, had abdominal surgery 3 days before, felt something 'let go' just as we were taking off.  Vitals OK, conscious, no additional pain. etc.  We divert to Winnipeg and when they off load her, it turns out she just shiate herself.

Here's the kicker - another friend in our group was a banker and got an upgrade from Econ to Business class, sat across the aisle from the elderly lady.  Talk about stink.  They cleaned up and we took off for Ottawa.  Nurse came back to sit with the rest of us plebs in Econ.

/End CSB

I live for stories like this (and the subsequent "Airplane!" references).  This just made my whole week.
