JetBlue flight crew helps French Bulldog distress

Darcy the French bulldog owned by Steven and Michele Burt of Westminster Mass. receives oxygen on a Jet Blue flight Thursday

A group of flight attendants with JetBlue came to the rescue when a French Bulldog was in distress during a flight last week.

On Thursday night, 3-year-old French bulldog Darcy was on a flight from Florida to MA with owners Michelle and Steven Burt when she started showing signs of distress, ABC News reported.

Burt immediately noticed that "her tongue was blue".

When holding her and giving her water didn't help, two flight attendants provided an oxygen mask for Darcy to help her breathe, which may have saved her life.

She said the flight attendants were well prepared because Renaud has a French bulldog of his own named Penelope.

They placed a breathing mask over Darcy's nose and mouth and, thankfully, she responded to the extra oxygen nearly immediately.

She held Darcy in her lap, trying to calm her.

That's when Mr Spencer, who told the couple he too had a French Bulldog, brought a small oxygen tank with a mask and Mrs Burt placed it on the Darcy's face.

Steven and Michelle Burt were traveling from Florida to Worcester when Darcy started suffering from a lack of oxygen. When that didn't work, they administered oxygen to the panting pup. "I believe [crew members] Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not". Goodness and kindness along with the ability to assess a medical crisis, albeit a canine in crisis saved the day.

In a letter to the airline posted on the Everyday Jumpseater Facebook page, Michelle explains that Darcy was pushing her head against the mesh part of the carrier and not lying down, despite Steven instructing her to.

Fenster then said he "decided that we needed to consider using oxygen to support the animal".

"We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs", the airline said in a statement.

Burt wrote that Darcy has completely recovered from the incident and noted that she will not be flying with the dog going forward, unless her vet okays it.
