Sadly, a departing EasyJet passenger from London Gatwick Airport passed away in the airport.
Due to his limited mobility, the 82-year-old man was scheduled to receive more help. He was traveling with his companion, who needed more assistance as well.
According to Gatwick Airport, the employee assigned to the man was helping another passenger in addition to the man and his companion. Instead of waiting for the crew member, the passenger made the decision to exit the aircraft.
The customer was on his way up the escalator to the Skybridge, which connects travelers to the north terminal, when he took a little detour and fell, according to a Gatwick spokeswoman.
He claimed that because EasyJet cabin crew were closest to the man, they offered medical care before airport medical personnel could arrive.
An airline spokesman said: “A number of our cabin crew provided medical assistance to a passenger at Gatwick Airport whilst waiting for paramedics to arrive. However the passenger sadly later passed away.”
Despite all efforts, the guy lost dead on Wednesday at 12:50 BST.
