CHICAGO (JGL) – I was seated on 20B passenger seat of American Airline Flight AA325 35 minutes into the flight at about 9:40 a.m. Central Time on Monday (Oct. 19) for my flight from La Guardia international airport in New York city bound for O’Hare International airport in Chicago, Illinois when I heard a commotion.

When I turned around and looked down the aisle, I saw a woman, who turned out to be a doctor, trying to rouse up a woman who seemed to have a seizure and was staring blank while lying down on her back on the aisle between seats Nos. 22C and 22D.

Failing to wake up after a few minutes, the woman prompted the flight stewardess to alert the pilot in the cockpit on her medical condition.

The pilot, in turn, announced that because of the “medical emergency,” the plane was making an emergency landing at Cleveland, Ohio Airport.

The Good Samaritan was seated on seat 21C, in front of the fallen elderly lady.

Just as soon as the fallen elderly lady was helped back on her seat on 22C, the lady’s eyes started to stare blank again, prompting the woman-doctor to massage the torso of the elderly woman again for a few minutes. And the lady’s eyes seemed responsive again and had managed to follow commands.

As soon as the plane landed at Cleveland airport, paramedics boarded the plane and applied emergency aids before wheeling the woman out of the plane. An elderly man, who appeared to be her husband, followed the elderly woman on wheelchair out of the plane.

The emergency triggered flight delays for many other flights for almost two hours.

A flight crew asked this passenger not to make public any video footage taken of the emergency to prevent “violation of privacy rights.”

When I emerged from the tube, I was greeted by my old friend, former Illinois state Sen. Darin LaHood, son of President Obama’s former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Mr. Darin LaHood was elected last month U.S. Congressman in Illinois’ 18th District in Peoria, replacing GOP Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock, who resigned last March following the controversy over his office’s spending habits. Damaging allegations against Schock continued right up to his resignation.
Representative LaHood is a member of the Natural Resources, Science, Space and Technology committees in the U.S. House of Representatives. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
