Dogs are unquestionably our guardian angels, and there are numerous anecdotes about their amazing – lifesaving – activities. Nonetheless, even an angel may require assistance. When this small Chihuahua needed assistance, two flight attendants stepped up and saved her life! When Michele Burt, her husband Steven, and their three dogs boarded a JetBlue aircraft from Florida to Massachusetts, it was intended to be a typical journey because they had gone many times before. The Burts followed protocol by keeping the dogs in carriers under their seats.
However, shortly after takeoff, Michele realized that one of her dogs, Darcy, a gorgeous French Bulldog, was experiencing respiratory difficulties. Michele opened Darcy carrier’s door, concerned, to check on her. The woman was aware that she was breaking airline company regulations, but her dog’s life was in jeo.pardy! “I saw her tongue was blue, and I know that’s a symptom of low oxygen,” the mother subsequently added. “I grabbed her from under the seat and placed her on my lap to assist her to relax and cool off since she was terrified and breathing rapidly.”
Renaud Fenster, the flight attendant, had no idea what was going on and originally requested Michele to return her dog because aircraft regulation is highly stringent in these cases. He immediately realized, however, that it may be something severe, so he raced to aid, but not before informing his colleague Diane Asher. The two crew members attempted to cool Darcy down with ice packs but were unable. Renaud, who also owns a French Bulldog, had another thought. One that, however, violates procedure. He was willing to take that danger in order to save the unfortunate dog’s life.
“He [Renaud] brought a tiny oxygen tank with a mask attached and said, ‘Maybe this would help,'” Michelle explained. “I feel Renaud and Diane saved a life, and while some may discount the worth of life because Darcy is a dog, I do not.” Darcy’s life was saved by the two flight attendants, despite the fact that they had to break the regulations.
So, once they arrived and Darcy had recovered completely, Michele decided to write a letter to thank these two wonderful women. “I wanted to thank JetBlue and Renaud and Diane for performing their jobs while also being wonderful people!”
When the corporation learned of the scenario, it was overjoyed. They even complimented the two women on their conduct! “Our purpose is to inspire mankind,” JetBlue said in a statement.
