A flight attendant tragically died only moments after the plane landed at an airport in the UK.
24-year-old Greta Dyrmishi was working for the airline Air Albania when she collapsed and died after the aircraft landed at Stansted Airport.
A post-mortem found that the cabin crew member died from ‘sudden adult death syndrome.’
Essex Coroner’s Court just heard that Dyrmishi was flying from the Albanian capital, Tirana, to Essex, when she suddenly fainted on December 21.
Paramedics did their best to revive her but she was unable to be saved.
According to the British Heart Foundation, Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, is “when someone dies suddenly and unexpectedly from a cardiac arrest, but the cause of the cardiac arrest can’t be found.”
The condition affects around 500 people in the UK every year and can be caused by an inherited heart condition, which can result in SADS if left untreated or undetected.
The East of England Ambulance Service Trust said an ambulance officer vehicle and Essex and Hearts Air Ambulance rushed to the scene.
Essex area coroner Michelle Brown said Drymishi’s death would be subject to a full documentary inquest.
“This 24-year-old female was cabin crew on a flight from Albania and was on the tarmac when she appeared to faint and was given basic first aid,” she said.
“Ten minutes later there was no pulse and CPR commenced. Paramedics treated her and confirmed she had passed away,” Coroner Brown continued.
“A post-mortem found her cause of death to be sudden adult death syndrome.’
“(At the time of the incident) she was at the front by the doors on a plane at Stansted Airport. This is suitable for a documentary inquest in due course.”
