And They Occupied Me 

    A Sunwing airline steward saved a traveler’s life who went into heart failure as a pilot made a crisis arrival at Toronto Pearson Global Air terminal this week.

    “Her heart halted,” Marisa Rodrigues, an airline steward of 18 years, told CTV News Toronto.

    On Tuesday, Rodrigues was planning for a standard arrival of a Sunwing departure from Cancun to Toronto while on the job as the Lodge Security Supervisor (CSM).

    Then, a call light glimmered a couple of times close to the center of the plane. As she drew nearer, she saw a lady having a seizure. Her body was in full seizure.

    “I saw that her fingers and around her mouth and face began to become blue and purple and her face was dim,” Rodrigues said.

    “I needed to promptly take her from her seat, put her down on the seat, lay her down and begin CPR.”

    Sunwing affirmed that a traveler was in clinical trouble on the departure from Cancun to Toronto on Tuesday.

    “The team quickly took care of the impacted traveler, alongside a medical attendant and clinical understudy on board the flight, and the Sunwing Carriers Lodge Wellbeing Chief working, Marisa Rodrigues, directed chest compressions on the traveler as the flight group pronounced a health related crisis and the airplane arranged for its plunge into Toronto,” a Sunwing representative told CTV News Toronto on Thursday.

    Along with a medical caretaker and clinical school understudy who answered the call, they lifted the lady from her seat and laid her down on the floor of the plane.

    Rodrigues situated the lady’s head between her legs and continued to drive air into her lungs before they set oxygen and a computerized outer defibrillator (AED) on the traveler.

    “As that was being put on… we understood that she had a heartbeat… it was extremely, shallow and incredibly, low,” she said.

    However, Rodrigues added, “She came through.”

    As the plane moved toward Pearson Air terminal, the skipper pronounced a health related crisis arriving to push to the front of the line of airplane showing up at the air terminal.

    “Due to the time period that it worked out, we didn’t have to redirect anyplace,” she said.

    Sunwing affirmed that paramedics then, at that point, met the airplane upon appearance in Toronto to give further clinical regard for the traveler.

    “We are very thankful for the fast reasoning, care and consideration given by our lodge team, drove by CSM Marisa Rodrigues, and different travelers who helped during a distressing circumstance while staying engaged and quiet,” the carrier said in a proclamation.

    “I’m attempting to keep down tears,” Rodrigues said.

    It was the first time in quite a while she had at any point done compressions on a traveler. She said clinical episodes have occurred with voyagers blacking out and confronting uneasiness.

    “However, nothing to this degree, of all time.”
