Heathrow Airport staff and life-saving surgeons thanked by Australian who stopped breathing on plane
A 68-year-old plane passenger who stopped breathing at Heathrow has thanked flight staff who provided CPR and his life-saving surgeons.
After boarding an Etihad Airways flight home to Australia, Glyn Danks "didn't feel ill at all" following a five-week visit to family members in the UK.
As his plane began to leave Heathrow Airport on August 22, Glyn lost consciousness and collapsed after he stopped breathing.
Soon after Glyn fell to the floor, the flight crew on board began providing CPR and the Heathrow Passenger Experience team arrived in under two minutes.
