72-year Nepali dies of heart attack inside London-bound Qatar Airways flight

A 72-year old Nepali national died of heart attack onboard London-bound Qatar Airways flight.

Sajit Buda died inside the plane on his way to London via QR 001 flight from the second transit in Doha, Qatar. It is learnt that Buda had flown with an oxygen mask on Thursday via QR 355 flight to Doha from Kathmandu.

Buda's family has claimed that he died because of the carelessness on the part of the airlines as he was restricted from carrying oxygen mask at Doha transit.

However, Qatar Airways officials in Kathmandu said no medical reports were submitted to them and that it was not possible for them to assess its condition.

Buda was flying with her wife and other two to visit his family members living in United Kingdom.

As far as i have heard and understood Mr. Budha had medical report with him On the basis of the document he was given oxygen in the plane from Kathmandu to Doha. In fact Mr Budha wasn't provided oxygen while flying from Doha to London.Mr Budha and His wife were stopped to fly in their own time of flight during transit. They were already in the plane but they were told to get off the plane for rest and check up. Therefore, it there was problem why didn't Doha staffs stopped them there and inform their family? Any why he was not allowed to carry a oxygen mask? So after reading the news about Mr. Budha I was shocked why they were sent in the second flight at transit at Doha? Was not it cruel and wrong thing to do? Why were staffs so careless to these helpless old passengers? Don't they have any human feeling? Why didn't they think that some day they might be in the same condition? It's so shameless of Doha airport and airlines? Now think on it seriously. D

i understood, from doha apo, he was not permitted to carry the same oxygen which he was carrying from ktm apo. doha staff restricted him to carry that particular one. on the air (doha-london) he was provided oxygen but that was not suitable for him and when the aircraft reached its max height, that oxygen stopped working for him. God knows what really happened!

I don't understand why a patient like him was restricted from carrying a oxygen mask at doha; was it because he didn't had any medical documents. Wasn't there a medic on board?
