British Airways steward, 52, dies in front of passengers on plane due to take off from Heathrow�for�Hong�Kong

A British Airways crew member died after she collapsed in front of passengers moments before their jet was due to take off. 

 

 

According to Mail Online, the 52-year-old steward fell to the floor as holidaymakers were preparing to fly from London Heathrow to Hong Kong on New Year’s Eve. 

 

 

It was gathered a medically trained passenger administered first aid to the stricken crew member. 

 

 

However, despite the efforts of passengers, police and paramedics – who arrived later – the steward could not be saved, reports The Sun, with the flight later cancelled due to the ‘medical emergency’.

 

 

The tragedy reportedly came just days after a second BA steward, also aged 52, died in America on December 23.   

 

 

A BA insider claimed there were ‘no reported underlying health conditions’ in both the crew members who died. 

 

 

Speaking of the double-death blow, a source told The Sun said colleagues were in ‘shock and disbelief’. 

 

 

‘It has been a traumatic festive period for BA’s flying team. Everyone is deeply upset,’ they said. 

 

 

An official cause of death for both crew members has yet to be determined.
