Thailand: In a horrific turn of events, a Lufthansa flight from Bangkok to Munich became the stage of a tragic incident when a 63-year-old German man lost his life after coughing up several liters of blood. The man, who is still unidentified, boarded the flight apparently ill, in a cold sweat and with difficulty breathing.

The ill-fated Lufthansa flight LH772 took off from Bangkok on February 9, 2024, carrying passengers with dreams and destinations. Unbeknownst to them, an unspeakable event was about to unfold. Upon boarding the plane, the 63-year-old German man was noticed by his fellow passengers to be in poor health. Despite his condition, the crew offered assistance in the form of chamomile tea and checking his pulse. However, his condition deteriorated rapidly shortly after takeoff.

Onlookers recounted a terrifying scene as the man began coughing up blood, which subsequently gushed from his mouth and nose, splattering the cabin walls and sending a wave of horror through the passengers.

Faced with this medical emergency, the crew and passengers united in a desperate attempt to save the man’s life. However, his efforts proved futile and the man succumbed to his condition. The tragic development necessitated an immediate change in course. The flight was rerouted back to Bangkok, leaving the passengers in a state of shock and disbelief.

Upon landing in Bangkok, passengers encountered an unexpected lack of guidance and support. For two hours they remained in limbo waiting for further instructions.

However, the most heartbreaking sight was that of the dead man’s wife. Left to complete the customs formalities alone, he had to bear the brunt of the tragedy in a foreign land.

Eventually, the passengers were booked on another flight. Some expressed a desire for Lufthansa to apologize and handle the situation better. Lufthansa has confirmed the medical emergency and expressed its condolences to the relatives of the deceased. The airline has not yet commented on passengers’ concerns regarding its handling of the situation.

The incident serves as a sobering reminder of the fragility of life, even amid the modern travel routine. This is reminiscent of a similar incident in January 2024 when a man was found dead in the bathroom on a Jet2 flight from Tenerife to Manchester, leading to the flight being diverted to Cork, Ireland.
