Swedish family wants Ryanair to apologise

Passenger suffering cardiac arrest offered sandwich and fizzy drink



A Swedish family is considering legal action against the low-cost airline Ryanair, saying that the carrier broke EU regulations because a crew on a flight to Sweden failed to provide adequate first-aid assistance to a passenger experiencing heart problems. According to the family travelling together with him, staff onboard said that the 63-year-old man must be suffering from high blood pressure and offered him a sandwich and a soda as a remedy – and then tried to charge for these menu items. The man had already passed out but regained consciousness when his wife shook him and slapped him in the chest. Staff only reacted when his wife shouted for a doctor, saying he needed oxygen. “We want Ryainair to apologise,” a family member told the newspaper Aftonbladet, after the incident.
