About halfway through a recent overnight flight from Los Angeles to New York, a call went out on the PA: Is there a doctor on board? “Is there a doctor on board? True stories of in-flight medical emergencies”
Every now and then I come across a case that leaves me deeply conflicted. This is one of those times.
Joel Pomerantz is a doctor who did the right thing, no question about it. A passenger on a US Airways flight needed help, and he volunteered his services. What happened next — and what to do about it — is less clear.
I could use your help, readers.
