Paramedics are poised to deal with any emergency – but 35,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean is the last place you might expect to have to spring into action.
That was the exact scenario facing Jason Williams - a Welsh Ambulance Service worker- who was on plane to Cuba with his family when a fellow passenger began to choke.
Jason sprung into action making himself known to the cabin crew.
Jason managed to lay the woman down and clear her airway.
Jason, who is based in St Asaph, Denbighshire prevented the flight being diverted to New York.
Tour Operators Thomas Cook have since written to Jason by way of thank you.
