Canada-based Indian blames
Air Canada for her father’s death
Ottawa, Nov 6: An Indian-origin Canadian woman has accused Air Canada of negligence that caused her 83-year-old father’s death during a flight from Delhi to Montreal. Shanu Pande, a resident of Ontario, along with her father Harish Pant left Delhi for Canada in September on an Air Canada flight. Seven hours later, when the long-haul flight was over Europe, Pant developed severe medical symptoms: chest pain, back pain, vomiting, loss of bowel control and the inability to stand up. Subsequently, Pande pleaded with the cabin crew to divert the plane and land in order to get her father to a hospital. However, the flight stayed on course for nine more hours, travelling over Ireland, across the Atlantic Ocean and Eastern Canada before landing in Montreal, where paramedics were waiting. But Pant died as they worked on him. (PTI)
