Nightmare on Lufthansa flight: German spits blood and dies shortly after take-off

It goes on to say that frightened passengers demanded that a doctor be sent to the man.

The flight captain is said to have asked for one via an announcement, whereupon a 30-year-old Pole is said to have answered.

As eyewitnesses further report to

Blick

, the doctor then simply measured the man's pulse and asked the man about his state of health - and then gave his "okay" for the flight - which turned out to be a tragic misjudgment.

As the Swiss newspaper further reports, the man spat blood into a bag shortly after take-off. “It was horror,” the paper quoted eyewitnesses as saying.

Flight attendants are said to have initiated resuscitation measures - but in vain.

The man on board died after about half an hour.

He was carried into the galley before the A380 touched down again in Bangkok.

The crane airline confirmed the incident to the Swiss newspaper.
