When I started to read it, I thought it was the family just trying to make some money. As I read on, I became of the opinion that maybe the airline was at fault.

I can't understsand why they de-planed before letting on the paramedics? Why didn't the bring out the defibrillators? Were the staff trained?

We have no way of knowing at this point, of course, and we're at this stage only and don't know the other side of the story we cannot judge.

BUT, if this actually went down as claimed, it is absolutely beyond the pale. Just inexcusable if no attempt was made even if unsuccessful.

My condolences to the family as well.
