In the early hours of 4 July, I was on a Lufthansa flight from Tampa to Frankfurt when a man appeared to go into cardiac arrest. Another passenger and I (both nurses) did CPR on the man for about 40 minutes until we landed in London (Heathrow) via a diversion, and the ground crew came aboard and took over. The passenger was worked on for another hour by the medical ground crew. I am inquiring as to whether or not we could find out if the passenger survived. It’s been on my mind since the event. Are you able to at least pass that information back to us? Unfortunately, I did not know the passenger’s name but he was a Polish gentleman living in Florida, was age 82, and we were aboard flight LH483. We also know he did have vital signs at least when he left the plane bound for the London hospital. Any information you could provide would be appreciated. Although the circumstances were not ideal for this poor man, it was a real pleasure to meet your medic team and to interact with them during this unfortunate event. I was VERY impressed with the professionalism and knowledge that they displayed. Well done!!
