Gruesome: Blood Erupts from Passenger's Mouth and Nose, Killing Him Mid-Flight


A flight from Thailand to Germany was diverted back to its point of origin Thursday after blood began gushing from a passenger’s nose and mouth.

The plane returned to Bangkok, but the male passenger, an unidentified 63-year-old German, had already been pronounced dead, according to an exclusive story by Blick, a news outlet based in Zurich, Switzerland.

The outlet quoted a passenger on the plane, Karin Missfelder, about the incident. Missfelder said she is a nursing specialist at a Zurich hospital.

Missfelder said she noticed right away that the man seated just ahead of her and across the aisle was not doing well.

“He had cold sweats, was breathing much too quickly, and was already apathetic,” she said.

Missfelder said she told a flight attendant that the man needed medical attention. But a young man who responded to a call over the loudspeaker for a doctor just checked the man’s pulse, asked how he was feeling, and indicated he was OK to fly.

“The man looked so bad, I don’t understand why the captain took off,” Missfelder said.

In hindsight, she said, as an experienced nurse, “I should have intervened.”

However, she said, “I saw that a doctor was looking after him, so I didn’t want to get involved.”

The flight attendants gave the man some tea, Missfelder’s husband Martin said, “but he already spit blood into the bag that his wife held out to him.”

After takeoff, he said, the man took a turn for the worse. He kept spitting into the bag, until finally a gush of blood erupted from his mouth and nose.

“It was absolute horror, everyone was screaming,” Martin Missfelder told Blick. Blood was everywhere — liters of it, he said, including on the walls of the aircraft.

Flight attendants attempted CPR — “Unfortunately a bit amateurish,” Karin Missfelder said — for about 30 minutes before the man was pronounced dead.

“It was dead quiet on board.”

At that point, the pilot turned the plane around to return to Bangkok. Missfelder said she and her husband had a lengthy delay before re-booking another flight.

The New York Post contacted Lufthansa, which confirmed the incident in a brief statement that said, “Although immediate and comprehensive first aid measures were taken by the crew and a doctor on board, the passenger died during the flight.

“Our thoughts are with the relatives of the deceased passenger. We also regret the inconvenience caused to the passengers of this flight.”

The Post reported the plane left Bangkok at 11:50 p.m. Thursday and touched down again there at 8:28 a.m. Friday.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
