Carlow mum thanks good Samaritan who assisted her daughter on plane

A local mother has thanked an off-duty flight attendant for the way he treated her daughter after she took ill on a flight.

Carlow’s Kelsey Nolan has cystic fibrosis and while she was travelling home alone on a plane from Lanzarote last Thursday her temperature spiked and her oxygen levels dropped.

A post by another passenger on Ryanair’s Facebook page – which has now been shared almost 2,000 times – says that an off-duty attendant immediately stepped up to help her.

Speaking to KCLR, Kelsey’s mother, Michelle says this good Samaritan was a huge comfort to her daughter, and he was actually on his way to a job interview.
