A flight attendant, Yasser Saleh Al Yazidi, has died after suffering a heart attack in the air during a flight from Bahrain to Paris.
The air steward fell ill on Gulf Air flight GF-19, which departed Bahrain International Airport at 1.40 a.m. on Tuesday and was headed for Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.
In order for Yasser to obtain medical assistance, the Airbus A321’s pilots were compelled to make an urgent landing in Erbil in Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
The plane was met by a medical team, which immediately transferred Yasser to a nearby hospital. Sadly, he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The management of Gulf Air confirmed the unfortunate incident in a statement.
“The national carrier expresses its deepest condolences to the crew member’s family and loved ones, and confirms that the flight resumed to Paris as scheduled. Gulf Air reassures that the safety of its passengers and crew comes at the top of its priorities, and thanks the affected flight’s passengers for their patience and understanding,” the statement read.
in other news, Instagram model, Gena Tew, who revealed a couple of weeks back that she is HIV positive, has gone totally blind on one eye following an eye surgery.
Gena underwent surgery sometime in August after she lost her vision in her left eye following her HIV diagnosis. Before the surgery, there was reason to hope the procedure would restore her vision.
Speaking to TMZ following the eye surgery, Gena revealed that she’s now completely blind in that eye for a second time and all she can see is pitch-black darkness.
Doctors prescribed new medication, but all the drugs have done is made her sick. Medical officials are now considering another surgery, but no decision has been made yet.
Gena has seen some improvement in other areas. She’s been putting some weight back on recently, going from 90 lbs to 105 lbs. She’s also regaining her ability to walk, with the help of a walker.
