A WS aircraft returned to the gate at YYC becuase a women needed a kidney transplant. The aircraft was taxiing to the runway for takeoff when the woman's husband called and told her that the hospital found a kidney donor for her! She ran and told the captain and then he nicely turned the 737-700 aircraft around and returned to the gate so she could get her transplant. The Aircraft was flying between YYC-YYZ.
The woman is now in hospital recovering from her sergury.
A very nice deed done on behalf of WestJet!
