Praise is coming for a Ghanaian who saved the life of another man on board a British Airways flight after the man had fallen down at the back of the plane.
A report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Attractivemustapha.com indicates that a Ghanaian by name Iky Marmah has saved the life another man, said to be in his fifties, on board a British Airways.
The British Airways flight had taken off three hours from the Heathrow Airport in London when a loud noise was heard from the back as a man had fallen inside the plane.
The report continued that when the noise was heard, everyone in the plane was surprised but Marmah took charge and instructed everyone to sit down.
In the end, Marmah who is a nurse, attended to man in distress and potentially saved his life.
Speaking in a video interview after he touched down at the Kotoka International Airport, Marmah revealed that he is an emergency care nurse at Frimley Park Hospital in the United Kingdom.
Marmah said in the interview: “I saw the gentleman murmuring so I kept an eye on him and later realised he was collapsing and his airway was getting compromised.
So I rushed to the scene and put him in a recovery position. I noticed as well that almost everyone on the flight were scared when the man fell so I quickly told them I was a nurse."
When asked if he was rewarded for the job done, Marmah said that he did not do the life-saving gesture for a reward.
But he received a "thank you" message from British Airways Crew and that appears to be enough.
