We are sitting on our plane in Calgary having arrived safely from Victoria. On the way here a woman had a medical emergency – I’m not exactly sure what is going on
As we taxied in, the pilot asked us to remain seated so they could deal with the emergency safely.
The plane is full. Every single person sat in silence while they arranged for paramedics for this woman. They started to allow people off the plane who were in rows ahead of her, and again in silence people grabbed their belongings and departed.
The rest of us are quietly sitting here waiting for her to be assisted and taken to hospital.
We all get in a rush – to go somewhere, to go home, to get a connecting flight – or just get self absorbed sometimes.
I’m so inspired by the flight attentants and the other passengers who all have remembered that the health and safety of all of us is the most important thing at the end of the day.
Prayers for this woman. I hope she’s ok.
