As a seasoned traveler and having been on many, many flights, I keep an eye on the crew members for any signs of distress ~ if they’re calm, I know all is well. As I was watching “Fool’s Gold” on our flight from Newark to San Juan, I noticed three flight attendants scurrying to the front of the plane. Uh, oh…I leaned over to FM and said “Pay attention, there’s something wrong.” No sooner did I say that then an announcement came over the intercom asking if there was a doctor or nurse on board. FM, who was sitting in the aisle seat looked over his shoulder and across the aisle, two rows back, was a woman who was unconcious and looking very ill. Thankfully a doctor came forward ~ popping out from behind the curtain that leads to first class 😉 Where else would you find a doctor on a plane!
The whole incident had my heart racing and, of course, FG and I said a prayer for her. The woman’s abuela (grandmother) starting wailing and panicking about her grand-daughter which lead me to believe the woman was dead. Turns out, the woman is a diabetic, was having a reaction and the doctor was able to stabilize her. Once we landed, we were asked to remain in our seats until the woman departed the plane and, to my relief, she was able to do so on her own.
