A tragic incident unfolded on a Lufthansa flight from Bangkok to Munich when a 63-year-old German passenger died in a showing way in front of his wife.
Despite appearing visibly ill upon boarding, the passenger’s condition worsened during the 12-hour flight, experiencing severe symptoms such as cold sweats and rapid breathing.
Despite the intervention of flight attendants and a young doctor who initially assessed him as “fine” after offering chamomile tea, the man began coughing up significant amounts of blood, leading to panic among passengers.
According to witnesses, ‘litres of blood’ was spewing from his mouth and nose.
Efforts to resuscitate him, including CPR for about 30 minutes, were unsuccessful, and the plane was forced to return to Thailand.
The incident left passengers, including Swiss traveler Martin Missfelder and his wife, deeply traumatized, citing a lack of immediate support from Lufthansa following the ordeal.
