Passenger Collapses Inside Plane Mid-Air, Because He Is Hungry


A male passenger who was on board airline flight 140 which took off at 1.00p.m. from Lagos and heading towards Abuja collapsed 10 minutes into the flight, because he was starving.

According to Nigerian Tribune, the crew of the airline who were already trained to handle such emergencies were said to have used the medical equipment on board including the two oxygen cylinders on board to bring him back to life.

Coincidentally, a medical personnel who was on board same flight was said to have asked the sick passenger about his state of health after he was revived and he reportedly told the medical personnel that he had not eaten for two days which suggested that he must have suffered dehydration.

Following the development, the pilot was said to have made an emergency call to the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) at Abuja airport requesting for an ambulance on ground.

Unfortunately, on landing in Abuja, the ambulance provided by FAAN officials at Abuja did not have oxygen for the passenger but the airline had to release its own two oxygen cylinders for the use of the passenger when he was taken to the hospital.

Confirming the incident, the Chief Operating Officer of Air Peace, Miss Oluwatoyin Olajide, said Air Peace as an airline does not joke with safety issues on board.
