Hey, decent people are decent people wherever they are. Good job guys!
Had a very similar thing happen to me when a man had a heart attack in-flight while me and the rest of the crew provided medical assistance. We had several Hooters girls on board that were on their way to a competition. They all came to our assistance and helped with the service.... I didnt mind at all the pax loved it. Glad to say the man survived tho....

This story does not surprise me in the least. Having visited Fiji I know the respect they have for one another, the care and love of life that they have. Wonderful work all the way around. A thank you for reminding me of how important the things we do for others is as important as the things we do for ourselves.
