Earlier this week, a Delhi resident experienced an anxiety attack on board an Air India flight in Ahmedabad. The woman thanked the Air India crew and a doctor social media for their assistance during her medical crisis.
Anjali Sinha, a senior sales manager for a private company, was flying from Delhi to Pune via Ahmedabad on Monday when the incident occurred. She had an anxiety attack after landing in Ahmedabad for a stopover and knows that there might be a delay in boarding.
“I was ok with it. And suddenly, I found difficulty in breathing and started gasping. I ran towards the exit,” she told to the sources.
This is when the Air India crew members came to her aid, she said. Upon the crew’s request, a doctor who was in the same flight rushed to Sinha’s aid.
“They made me sit down in the business class as that was open in comparison to the economy class,” she said. As the doctor monitored her pulse and blood pressure, she was given juice and a cold towel which was placed on her face.
“This is a big shout out to the angels who helped me with my anxiety attack on an Air India Flight Yesterday,” Sinha wrote on Instagram.
“She (the doctor), along with the Air India crew, attended (to) me with utmost patience, positivity and calmness. It took me a good 45 to 50 minutes to come back to my normal self, and other ground staff and medical officers helped as well.”
Sinha said was feeling much better by the time the Air India ground staff and medical staff were called in. The doctor brought in by the airline too checked her vitals before the flight could take off for Pune.
Air India thanked Sinha for appreciating the crew’s prompt action. “We’re glad to know that our team served you up to your expectations. We will surely convey your compliments to our team,” the airline tweeted.
