Elderly passenger saves flight attendant who collapsed from stomach pains

An elderly female passenger from China's Liuzhou city made headlines for what she did on a flight to Bangkok - and this time, for right reasons.

According to CCTVNews, Thai media reported that a male flight attendant collapsed during a flight to Bangkok due to stomach pains.

Qu Yan, a retired Chinese doctor, then rushed to his assistance. Onlookers said the female passenger took the young man's pulse before giving him a finger massage‬ and ‪medicine‬.

The attendant recovered soon after the treatment.

The crew commander, Tunte, expressed his gratitude and said that majority of the Chinese tourists are of high quality. As a native-born Thai, he welcomes every Chinese travelling to Thailand.

This is in contrast to the bad press Chinese passengers have received in the past few months.
