Germany – Emergency Landing Leaves 33 Hospitalized (Video)

Ryanair, the biggest low-cost airline in Europe, has seen some unfortunate news stories about its flights and operations in the past year. To deal with the non-taken legal holidays of its pilots, it decided to scrap many flights at the end of last year, leaving it without many of its most loyal passengers afterward who discovered rivals like Easyjet, Norwegian and Vueling.

The rumor that circulated on the internet since is that only the pilots not capable or properly flying a plane are thus left at the Irish company Ryanair, which pays the lowest salaries.

The news coming out of Germany yesterday certainly won’t help to debunk those rumors. When a flight from Dublin, Ireland on its way to Zadar, Croatia, had to make an emergency landing in Frankfurt, Germany, the pilot descended so fast that many people bled from the ears and noses, leaving them with ruptured eardrums and slight concussions. 33 had to be hospitalized afterward.

Passenger Miss Minerva Galvan, who is currently hospitalized, claimed: “The worst moments of whole my life. You are in the air and one moment after you are just falling in the sky, your ears burn, there is no air and your mouth taste like iron.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Amazing video from Mr. Kevin Burke. You can see how terrified we were. No-one speaking, no-one moving.

Passenger Ms Sarah McGarry explained the moments when the flight cabin started losing pressure: “We get on the plane, we’re flying and next of all the oxygen mask comes down, we’re left in darkness for 15 minutes, there’s no reassurance just people shouting emergency, emergency.”

“There was a newborn baby and children on the flight, people are screaming and we don’t know what’s going on for 15 minutes. Then finally we’re told that we’re going to Germany.”

Ms McGarry traveled to Zadar for a holiday with her boyfriend was not told by the low-cost airline that if she wouldn’t be back in time to catch the rescheduled flight, which was due to take off at 9.30am on Saturday, she could still get on board. She claimed: “My eardrum burst when the plane dropped and I was told I’d have to travel 70km to be seen at the hospital because that there were no doctors there available. I wasn’t reassured if I went that I’d be able to get back on the flight.”

Her boyfriend, Mr Keiran Blunt, claimed that they’ve never been treated poorer by an airline: “It’s disgraceful, I know these things happen but what really got me was the lack of reassurance from the company in general. There was no reassurance from the captain, from the staff team at Ryanair, we were just left in limbo since yesterday.

“The children here have been left without water, they’ve had no lunch provided to them.”
