Last week, Tony Aldapa was on a flight from Orlando, Florida, to Los Angeles, California, when one of the passengers suffered a heart attack. Aldapa, who is a licensed EMT, didn’t hesitate and rushed over to help.
He performed CPR on the man as the plane was diverted to New Orleans. He did not perform mouth-to-mouth on the man but did have to place an oxygen mask over his face. When the plane landed, the man was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. United Airlines said that the man had symptoms of COVID-19 but would not say if that was the cause of his death.
One week later, Aldapa is worried he may have contracted COVID-19. He said he has been suffering from a dry cough, headaches, and body aches and has been in quarantine since the flight.
