JetBlue crew hailed as heroes for saving dog on flight

JetBlue flight attendants save French bulldog's life by providing oxygen mask

But, on their recent JetBlue flight home to Boston, they noticed that their 3-year-old French bulldog, Darcy, was in distress. Her owner, Michele Burt, saw that the dog's tongue and gums were blue, a sign of insufficient oxygen. When Burt opened the flap to give the pup some air, she realized Darcy's tongue was blue.

Michelle pulled her dog out of the carrier and into her lap with the hopes that it might help Darcy calm down.

Crew member Renaud Spencer holds Darcy after the dog was feeling better.

That's when Mr Spencer, who told the couple he too had a French Bulldog, brought a small oxygen tank with a mask and Mrs Burt placed it on the Darcy's face.

The crew came to the rescue with an oxygen mask for Darcy.

"I placed the mask over her face, and within a few minutes she became alert and after a short time she didn't want the mask", Michele said.

Upset by the sudden decline in health, they asked for help from the flight attendants.

The new system definitely beats the quad cameras although, at this point, we can say that many cameras are not really necessary. Much of the results depend on the software and, of course, the skills of the photographer.

Photos of Darcy with the oxygen mask over her mouth have spread across social media.

Darcy has since recovered, and Burt says she won't fly with her again without her vet's OK.

"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", Burt wrote on Facebook. "I brought the dog some ice, and that didn't do anything".

"I decided that we needed to consider using oxygen to support the animal".

In a statement to ABC 7 in NY and other media outlets, JetBlue said they were happy their crew members went "above and beyond" to help the dog and that Burt's thank-you letter would be forwarded to higher-ups so the attendants can be recognized for their kindness.

"We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs", the airline said in a statement.

Michelle later wrote a thank you note to JetBlue in which she praised the actions of their flight crew.
