63-Year-Old Man Died In Flight; Coughed Up Litres of Blood On Plane

West Palm Beach, FL: Passengers were deeply disturbed when a tragic incident occurred during a recent flight, resulting in the unfortunate passing of a 63-year-old man.

The distressing event involved the man coughing up a significant amount of blood, which unfortunately led to the aircraft walls being stained with blood.

As reported by the Daily Mail, an unidentified man and his wife were on a flight from Bangkok, Thailand, to Munich, Germany, when he suddenly fell ill and his condition worsened rapidly.

According to Daily Mail, the man’s wife expressed concern about her husband’s condition as he boarded the flight. She mentioned that he was experiencing cold sweats and breathing rapidly, attributing it to the fact that they had to rush to catch the plane.

Passenger Martin Missfelder’s wife, Karin Missfelder, a nursing specialist, quickly informed a flight attendant about the man’s need for medical attention. Upon hearing the pilot’s call, a doctor was summoned over the intercom. A Polish medic promptly assessed the 63-year-old’s condition and determined that he was in good health, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The man received chamomile tea, but by then, he was already coughing up blood into a bag held by his wife. As the plane ascended, the man’s condition deteriorated, and a significant amount of blood started flowing from his nose and mouth, spreading across the walls of the aircraft.

“It was a truly terrifying experience, with people screaming in sheer horror,” Martin recounted to Swiss outlet Blick. Martin stated that the individual experienced a significant loss of blood.

Karin remembered how the staff had made every effort to administer CPR to the man for approximately half an hour. However, it became evident that their efforts were in vain, as the man could not be revived, as reported by the Daily Mail.

“It was eerily silent on board,” Karin said, recounting the aftermath of the horrifying incident.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the captain made an announcement over the intercom regarding a tragic incident on board, leading to the flight’s return to Bangkok and the subsequent disembarkation of passengers.

Our condolences go out to the family of the passenger who passed away. Lufthansa expressed their regret for the inconvenience experienced by the passengers of this flight in a statement to the Daily Mail.
