Bklink: Brooklyn Mom Dies on Flight

"A Brooklyn mom flying back from Haiti on American Airlines died after two onboard oxygen tanks that could have been used to revive her failed to work, relatives said Sunday. Carine Desir, 44, a nurse from Lefferts Gardens, collapsed an hour into the flight on Friday, moaning, 'Don't let me die.' Flight attendants and medical personnel tried to save Desir by administering oxygen, but the tanks were empty, the family charged."--NYDN

Well, yes, this was their story, but this is more than a little one-sided, in so far as the investigation has so far revealed that all the equipment on board was working properly, had been checked prior to the flight, and was properly employed by flight personnel, as reported by the NYT. Her relative's IMPRESSION was that it hadn't worked.
