Quick-thinking flight crew saves French bulldog

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

A local couple is crediting a JetBlue flight crew with saving the life of their French bulldog.

Darcy, the French bulldog owned by Steven and Michele Burt of Westminster, Mass., receives oxygen on a JetBlue flight Thursday, July 5, 2018. When Burt opened the flap to give the pup some air, she realized Darcy's tongue was blue. The crew was able to bring the dog, named Darcy, an oxygen mask.

When a flight attendant "politely" told Burt that it was airline policy that the dog remain under the seat in its carrier, Burt apparently told them that Darcy 'appeared to be in medical distress'. That's when the couple explained that their dog needed help.

"I noticed that her tongue was blue and I am aware that is a sign of insufficient oxygen (Hypoxia)", Michele Burt wrote in a letter addressed to JetBlue and provided to WCVB-TV.

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

"I believe Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not", Mrs Burt wrote. I know it's not a child or a person but she is a family member.

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

Qazi Jameel said that more than 30 people were injured in the explosion, who have been shifted to Lady Reading Hospital. Meanwhile, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the attack was a threat to democracy and the democratic process.

Burt confirmed that Darcy made a complete recovery and is fine post-flight. "So, I called the captain and I told him, said, 'I think I need to use some oxygen, ' and he said, 'Go ahead, '" said flight attendant Renaud Fenster.

Burt thanked JetBlue and the crew members and said, "In a time when the news cycle is so negative and divisive, it helps to be reminded that good people are doing good things on a daily basis even if it is in small ways or big ways".

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