Passenger dies mid-flight after 'litres of blood' shoot out of his nose and mouth all over the interior of the plane on flight from Bangkok to Germany | 9 Feb 2024 | Horrified air passengers screamed and were left "traumatised" yesterday when a German husband started coughing up "litres of blood" in front of his wife before collapsing and dying mid-flight. The 63-year-old traveller, who has not been named, was said to have boarded the Lufthansa flight from Bangkok to Munich visibly ill before his condition rapidly deteriorated. "It was absolute horror, everyone was screaming," fellow passenger Martin Missfelder, 53, from Zurich, Switzerland, told Swiss outlet Blick. The man - who was travelling with his Filipina wife - had got on with "cold sweats" and was "breathing much too quickly" before passengers rushed to help him, offering chamomile tea and taking his pulse. But as the plane took off, his health went quickly downhill. The man was said to have been spitting into a bag when a "gush of blood" came out of his mouth and nose, splattering the walls of the Airbus A380 aircraft.
