JetBlue crew hailed as heroes for saving dog on flight

Darcy the French bulldog owned by Steven and Michele Burt of Westminster Mass. receives oxygen on a Jet Blue flight Thursday

A MA couple has publicly thanked JetBlue airlines after two of their flight attendants jumped into action during an emergency thousands of feet in the air.

Michele and Steven Burt were returning from Orlando with their three dogs when Darcy, the French bulldog, began pushing her head against the mesh part of her carrier. Without warning the dog's tongue and gums turned blue and she began panting frantically.

But Burt told the attendant the dog was struggling, and that's when attendants Renaud Fenster and Diane Asher came to help, she told the airline.

A woman has thanked flight attendants for helping save her French Bulldog after the pup fell ill and needed an oxygen mask on a flight. Knowing that this is a sign of insufficient oxygen (Hypoxia), she "pulled her out from under the seat and placed her on my lap to cool down and help her relax".

"We all are affected by cabin pressure and oxygen fluctuations, human, canine and feline, etc., but the fact that the attendants were responsive and attentive to the situation may have saved Darcy's life", Michele Burt wrote on Facebook.

Steven and Michelle Burt were traveling from Florida to Worcester when Darcy started suffering from a lack of oxygen. After Darcy breathed through the mask for a few minutes, she became alert and returned to normal.

'I believe Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not'.

She accompanied the letter with pictures of Darcy wearing the oxygen mask and being held by flight attendant Spencer while deplaning.

Burt wrote that Darcy has completely recovered from the incident and noted that she will not be flying with the dog going forward, unless her vet okays it.

JetBlue released a statement to ABC News about the incident, which could have been risky had flight crew not reacted.

JetBlue responded in a statement saying: "We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs".
