What Happens If You Die During A Flight?

What Happens If You Die During A Flight?

Picture this you’re cruising at 30,000
feet but then all of a sudden you or someone else on the flight passes away
what happens to that person are they thrown off the plane or are they stored
somewhere well today we’re gonna find out exactly what happens if someone
passes away on an airplane I’m Charlie and today we’re going to find out what
happens if you pass away during a flight but before we take off why not subscribe
and press the notification bell too you may be thinking get real no one ever
passes away on a plane but according to flight attendants it’s much more common
than you’d imagine for example a month ago a 34 year old woman passed away on a
flight from LA to Melbourne there were two doctors on board but they couldn’t
save her and a year ago a British woman passed away on a flight from Pakistan to
the UK in that case the passengers had to sit with her body for two hours on
the tarmac that’s because for some reason paramedics were not able to get
onto the plane but what’s the real procedure for when this happens well in
reality it differs from airline to airline some larger and more luxurious
airplanes have something named a corpse cupboard this is basically a large
Locker which is able to transport an average-sized body for example singapore
airlines airbus a340 had these corpse cupboards but most smaller and less
luxurious airplanes do not have these cupboards and amazingly not all flight
attendants are actually trained to deal with the situation all European airlines
have to comply with EU safety regulations this includes being trained
to use defibrillators and first-aid procedures in the USA things are a bit
different and airlines pick their own training but in most cases what will
happen to a body which is passed away is they’ll be moved to an empty row if
there are no empty rows available then that they’re moved to business class
just imagine that paying for business class and then sitting next to a corpse
also sometimes the bodies will be covered up with a rug or a sheet if one
is available one flight attendant named Annette along told Business Insider I
probably put a blanket over the person she said she’d do this so that people
would not look or take photos of the body after all flight attendants want to
make sure there’s dignity Emrys if someone passes away on the flight but
did you know that flight attendants have a secret code to say whether someone’s
passed away on board that code is Jim Wilson if you hear your pilot or flight
attendants mention the name Jim Wilson it means someone’s passed away on the
plane after all 50,000 corpses are flown every year so they have to have a
nickname this way the passenger can be talked about while not disturbing the
public so they may say please be seated while we remove a passenger Jim Wilson
from their seats or they may say a flight attendant is needed to deal with
Jim Wilson but has there been any reported times when people have passed
away during a flight well the answer is absolutely on the 1st of April 2019 a
passenger passed away on a Qantas plane she was Australian and 34 and she passed
away despite two doctors on the airplane she was going from LA to Melbourne her
home and doctors did try to save her on the plane fellow passengers on the
flight expressed their shock on social media one person wrote on snapchat
someone actually passed away on my flight home so sad also in March of this
year a 63 year old British grandmother passed away she had a heart attack on an
easyJet flight but the family say they do not blame easyJet the woman named
Anne Rudkin was flying from the UK to Malaga Spain also last year a 36 year
old father was travelling from the UK to New Zealand he was with his wife and two
young kids but he passed away the plane had to stop in Dubai and the man named
Simon was removed from the airplane and in 2014 a 23 year old woman passed away
during a flight she was going from London to New York City and on this
flight again a doctor was on board and he did try and help but his efforts were
fruitless and she did pass away despite only being 23 recently someone asked on
the question-and-answer web site Quorra what happens if someone passes away on a
plane and a woman that named Sue Jackson responded telling her own story about
her husband she said my husband passed away during a lone-wolf flight from New
Zealand to Los Angeles they were in business class and he went to sleep and
never woke up apparently he passed away due to lack of oxygen in his lung
when this happened a doctor who was on board came
to try and check him out and try and save his life
sadly it did not work and Sue’s husband could not be saved so instead his body
was covered up with a blanket and she lay beside him until they landed the
plane was then cleared of everyone except the crew herself and her husband
Keith but then a lot of people board with the airplane police paramedics
customs officials the coroner immigration and airline management all
came in to the plane he was then put on a stretcher and wheeled away to a nearby
hospital apparently on his death certificate the place of death says
flight nc5 and apparently when it happened sue was even given a minder
during the flight this mind has stayed with her the entire flight and made sure
she was okay as what happened was so sad and shocking sue Jackman’s story really
is sad but it does go to show exactly what happens if someone passes away on a
plane so I hope now you’ll curiosity about what happens if you pass away on a
flight has been quenched check out the poll in the top right corner and vote
for if you’ve ever been on a plane where they calls personally I haven’t and I
hope to never be if you want some more amazing videos then check out my second

She went to the hospital and the passengers were not allowed to leave untill the woman was gone with the ambulance. I do not know if she is ok but if she did die then it did not happen on the plane and i am thankful for that. I hooe that she is alive 😭😭😭😭😭😭

    Unless a medical doctor is on board the flight time of death cannot be determined and time of death is recorded once a doctor has inspected the body. Just image dying after take off in NY on route to Wellington New Zealand two different time zones

    I’m a flight attendant I have to say that most of this is not true. We would do cpr until we landed. Nobody ever “dies” on a plane. There is nobody in that plane that is certified to confirm anyone is actually “dead.” Plus do you know what kind of awful publicity there would be if someone died on a plane? Not gonna happen.

  • -aaa- *123*

    But I never been on a plane

  • Alec

    Having been a Flight Attendant and in the industry for 10 years now, we definitely do not call them “jim Wilson” 😂 we’ll look at you like WTF is this fool talking about? Secondly, you don’t actually “die” in the air. You will be pronounced dead on the ground by a Medical Examiner…so until then, you’re just “napping” even though we know you’re dead. In rare circumstances, IF you have a Medical Doctor onboard, they on their own responsibility can declare you dead but then that releases all liability from the airline onto that Medical Doctor.

    The part about putting a deceased person on a plane is pretty accurate. For US airlines, we’ll try to move people seated next to the deceased and cover with a blanket. Good luck finding a “cabinet” for dead people on US based carriers 😂

  • phone refill center

    if you're on United they beat the doctor up who am I talking about dr. David dao who would want to be a doctor on the United flight after dr. David dao got beaten up if I was a doctor I would look to travel with any other flight brought United United throws off a doctor

  • phone refill center

    if your United airlines I don't know what happened to passenger who's deceased because it wouldn't even allow a doctor onboard don't forget what they did to dr. David dao elephants don't forget and they also don't forgive whoever has elephant memory we don't forget and we don't forget we never forgave United airlines for sending dr. David dao I knowwe never forgave United airlines for sending dr. David dao off the airplane with trucks are a disgusting send off United hates doctors they hate dr. David dao because he's a he was singled out specifically because he's a United does not want doctors I'm bored they don't want doctors on board they don't want nurses I'm bored that's Unitedif United airlines ever needs a medical professional I'm bored too bad you die it's your own risk that's United airlines pif God forbid you have a heart attack and you on United airlines to bad don't even call for the doctor because they don't have one on board or the nurse they don't have one on board because if they can send dr. David dao office in such a disgrace then they absolutely hate you because your medical professional that's United airlines and I

  • Eissa Ibrahim

    Can u make the video 2mins

  • jm Morgenstern

    But this is true if you're not on United Airlines don't forget United Airlines send dr. David Dao off the plane with injuries elephants don't forget and they don't forgive and neither should we ever forget a never forgives what United Airlines did to dr. David Dao if your on United and you need a doctor too bad you're going to be six feet under God forbid if you have a heart attack so if you have a heart condition do not fly United Airlines why because they'll be no doctor on board you remember what they did to dr. David Dao elephants don't forget and we don't forgive that sea elephant weigh and again neither should you always remember what United Airlines did and therefore if you have a heart condition and your God forbid prone to heart attacks do not fly on United Airlines there will be nobody to help you if they can do that to dr. David Dao what they did then it's not safe for you with a heart condition to fly on United Airlines tell your friends family and colleagues to stop Flying United Airlines because of what they did to dr. David Dao elephants don't forget and they don't forgive

  • jm Morgenstern

    And by the way if this incident happened on United Airlines there would be rejoicing with a party so remember people who have heart conditions if you have a heart condition or any condition do not fly on United Airlines because there's no doctor on board and once again I remind you elephants don't forget and don't forgive especially what they did to dr. David Dao
