Flight DL172 emergency landing in military base in Okinawa
Due to an medical emergency on flight DL172, Manila to Narita. The plane was diverted to a US military base in Okinawa, Japan. As we landed, US military medical team boarded the plane and helped deplane the passenger and her husband for further medical assistance. Unfortunately on what I saw, husband is in distress as medical passengers before hand gave CPR for almost an hour with no positive results. Until we landed, tears just rolled my eyes as seeing what the older couple is going through.
95 percent of the passengers has connecting flights to catch in Narita. Unfortunately, Most of us missed our connecting flights. Some of us has to take a bus from Narita airport to Tokyo airport to catch other flights to make it back home. As I send this some are just leaving Japan and chances are some are still there.
I finally made it back to Seattle. Good to be home and slept 12 hours.
