What happened to Al Yazidi?
A FLIGHT attendant, unfortunately, passed away after having a heart attack while flying to Paris. On the journey from Bahrain to Charles de Gaulle airport, Yasser Saleh Al Yazidi fell unwell.
The Gulf Air flight GF-19’s pilots were required to do an emergency landing in Erbil, which is located in Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
When the crew member was brought inside the hospital, which had already been converted, a medical team was waiting to treat him, but he had already been declared dead.
Ahmed Hoshyar, the director of the Erbil airport, informed the local media that the man fell ill while the plane was 34,000 feet above Iraq. Before passengers could continue their trip, the plane was grounded for four hours.
Gulf Air’s statement
Following Yasser’s passing, Gulf Air released a statement in which it expressed its sincere sympathies to the crew member’s family and loved ones and confirmed that the flight had resumed to Paris as planned.
Gulf Air thanks the passengers on the impacted aircraft for their understanding and patience, assuring them that the safety of its passengers and crew is its top priority.
