A flight attendant has died tragically soon after suffering a coronary heart assault in the air through a flight from Bahrain to Paris.
Air steward Yasser Saleh Al Yazidi fell sick on Gulf Air flight GF-19 which left Bahrain Worldwide at 1.40am on Tuesday and was destined for Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.
The pilots of the Airbus A321 had been forced to make an unexpected emergency landing in Erbil in the Kurdistan region of Iraq so Yasser could acquire clinical awareness.
The aircraft was satisfied by a clinical crew who immediately transferred the stricken cabin crew member to a close by hospital. He was pronounced useless on arrival.

The pilots of the Gulf Air flight had been pressured to make an crisis landing in Erbil in the Kurdistan region of Iraq 9Erbil global airport is pictured), in which the aircraft was met by a healthcare workforce
The aircraft was cruising at an altitude of 34,000 feet about Iraq when Yasser was taken sick, director of Erbil airport Ahmed Hoshyar instructed Iraqi media.
The flight was grounded for around 4 hours at Erbil global airport right before the passengers were being able to go on on their journey to the French cash.
A Gulf Air statement unveiled in the wake of Yasser’s death read: ‘The nationwide carrier expresses its deepest condolences to the crew member’s household and loved ones, and confirms that the flight resumed to Paris as scheduled.

‘Gulf Air reassures that the safety of its travellers and crew will come at the major of its priorities, and thanks the afflicted flight’s passengers for their patience and knowledge,’ the statement continued.
Cabin crew are generally educated to administer fundamental 1st assist and all planes are geared up with rudimentary first support kits and medical materials.
But most commercial flights do not travel with specialist medical products and unless of course a medical doctor takes place to be on board, pilots are generally needed to conduct an unexpected emergency landing at an suitable airport should really any major professional medical problems come up in the course of a flight.
