UK: A woman, Helen Rhodes, died on her flight to the UK in front of her husband and children. Helen was found to be totally unresponsive while she was travelling to the United Kingdom. However, the reason for the death still remains unknown. The woman was on a flight en route United Kingdom from Hong Kong when she took her last breath, leaving her husband and children sitting helplessly for about eight hours.
As per the sources, Helen was moving back to the United Kingdom from Hong Kong after staying there for fifteen years along with the family. She was really excited to start afresh in life in the UK. But soon as the flight took off, Helen fell totally unresponsive on August 5th as she slept breathlessly in her seat.
Ms Rhodes was unable to resuscitate on board the aircraft. Further adding to the agony, her children had no option but to sit next to their deceased mother for the remaining hours of the flight until the plane could land. Her husband, Simon, and young kids, namely Nathan and Emma, have been left devastated by the loss.
The plane had to be landed in Germany, where Helen’s body was left in Frankfurt, while her family had to travel the rest of the way without her. Helen was a midwife, and she also ran her own business crafting bespoke accessories. She belonged to a tight-knit group named Tung Chung Mums, where more than 300 women turned to her seeking medical advice.
The UK Foreign Office said that the department is supporting the family of the British woman who died on a flight to Frankfurt and are in contact with local authorities, as the reports stated.
