HCM City (VNS)— A Canadian national on a flight from Ha Noi to HCM City was saved after suffering a stroke 20 minutes after the aircraft left Noi Bai Airport on Thursday.

The budget airline, Jetstar Pacific announced yesterday that a woman passenger had suffered a stroke on Flight BL795, which left Ha Noi at 3.20pm on Thursday, and collapsed to the floor.

Doctors and airhostesses on the flight administered first aid and resuscitated the passenger.

Last month during a flight, an airhostess saved a child who had a candy stuck in her throat.

In 2011, an airhostess also helped a woman give birth while on a flight from HCM City to Vinh. –– VNS
