Airline: EMT Focused On Dying Woman, Not Her Underwear”

A woman who suffered a medical emergency while in the bathroom of an American Airlines flight Monday died after she was taken off the plane on a stretcher. Paul International Airport in an effort to render medical aid.

A doctor and nurse on board attempted to revive her with a defibrillator, and emergency crews came on board once the plane landed. Hogan and American Airlines officials said all the woman had on at the time was a shirt and underwear.

Art Endress said he has seated about 10 rows ahead of the bathroom when an emergency medical technician (EMT) came aboard with other responders, stood behind her head and "dragged her down the aisle" as she was face up.

"The EMT was out of line", said Endress, 63, a research engineer at Southern Methodist University. "The flight attendants could have thrown a blanket on her" as her body went past some of the 150 or so seated passengers.

But another passenger disputed his account.

Dave Sampsell, who also claimed to have been on the flight, told the Star Tribune: "She was not half naked".

Hogan confirms that EMT staff found Hines unconscious in the lavatory, but was unable to address what had happened to her.

"From our standpoint, everything was handled according to the textbook", he said.

Hogan couldn't comment on the details but said EMTs worked for almost an hour.

Minneapolis airport spokesman Pat Hogan said emergency workers who carried Hines' partially clothed body down the aisle were focused on saving her life, the Associated Press reported.

Feinstein said that once a plane has landed, staff 'hand over the responsibility for the passenger to the local first responders [and] stand clear of the situation. After about an hour, a tarp was put up in the jetway to shield the woman as the passengers were allowed to leave.

American Airlines Spokesman Ross Feinstein added that flight attendants would have responded earlier if they were made aware that someone had been in the bathroom for awhile.

"We're grateful for the response of our highly trained flight attendants and our customers who assisted our passenger until first responders arrived".
