An elderly woman passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest on an El Al flight earlier today.
El Al flight LY333 was en route to Belgium when it returned to Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, after a woman collapsed mid flight. A Hatzolah member on the flight was called to her seat, where he worked nonstop until landing, eventually recovering the woman’s heartbeat.
Upon landing, an ambulance rushed the woman to the nearest hospital where she was taken to the emergency room for immediate treatment. Unfortunately her condition deteriorated and she died a short while later.
