Man’s Heart Stops in Flight But Luckily, Two Paramedics Were On Board

A man in his 70s collapsed on a flight when his heart stopped.  Luckily, two paramedics were on the flight as well.

From ABC News:

“He was really pale in color and he was sweating profusely,” said Van. “I started noticing that he’s not breathing, he does not have a pulse. I immediately started CPR .”

Van and George hooked the man up to an IV and an auto-external defibrillator provided by the flight crew.

This reminds me of the bachelor party consisting of firemen that were on a plane when a passenger went catatonic.  Luckily, those passengers were on their way *to* the bachelor party, not from it.
