Quick-Thinking Pilot Diverts Plane to Save a Dog
A French bulldog named Simba may be alive today thanks to an Air Canada pilot flying a passenger plan from Tel Aviv to Toronto.
The pilot noticed a problem with the cargo area’s heating system, where Simba was staying so diverted the flight to Frankfurt, Germany, where the seven-year-old pooch was boarded onto another plane.
"With the altitude it can become very uncomfortable, and possibly the situation could have been life-threatening if the flight had continued."
Fitzpatrick added: “While we recognize this was an inconvenience for our customers, the overall reaction was positive, particularly once people understood the dog was in potential danger but safe as a result of the diversion.”
The 200 passengers reached Toronto 75 minutes later than planned.
