Two different passengers with heart complaints were taken care of by the capable hands of KLM crew members. They most probably have to thank their lives to the KLM crew due to the fast action that was taken.
The captain on a KL flight from IAH to AMS, decided to turn back when one of the Flight Attendants had some serious heart complaints.
The flight from YVR to AMS made an emergency stop in Yellowknife in Northern Canada, after a 67 year old woman went into cardiac arrest.
Fortunately both flight had doctors on board and Flight Attendants with nursery skills for the initial care. They were supported by a KLM doctor in AMS by radio.
The KLM Flight Attendant is momentarily in a Houston hospital, where her company is being kept by a fellow Flight Attendant.
CPR has successfully been performed on the 67 year old woman and she is staying in a Canadian hospital.
In both cases the flights only had a few hours delay. The passengers applauded the entire crew for the way they handled the situations.
