Mile High SOS

So, the excitement of the day for me was being called to render medical assistance to a passenger on the flight from Singapore back to Beijing.

Fortunately, turned out to be nothing too serious...syncope due to mild dehydration, due to excessive alcohol intake(!!!).

When the flight attendant first approached me to ask for help, my panicked mind was thinking about the case a few weeks ago where a passenger suffered what sounds like a heart attack while on a flight and died. The inner me was saying, "Oh sh*t, don't let it be a heart problem!" while outwardly appearing as cool as ice.

Anyway, all's well that ends well. That's my adrenaline rush for the day.
