15 minutes after aircraft took off a woman had a stroke. As an EMT I offered medical assistance to her. Later captain decided to return to HKIA. But aircraft must dump fuel before it can be safe landed. Here is the picture showing the fuel

Interesting to see what a fuel dump looks like. I too hope the lady with the stroke was ok.

Sorry, but to me it seems like a huuge waste of fuel, but if it garantees a safe landing, its important.

That's like quarter million dollar worth of fuel being dumped at today's price! But you can't put a price on a life. Respect to the Captain.
