Woman saved by 15 docs during flight

A flight in the United States proved lucky for a British woman who suffered a heart attack.

Doctor
Fifteen heart specialists, all bound for a medical conference in Florida, stood up to offer help when a cabin attendant asked, "Is there a doctor on board?" Dorothy Fletcher, 67, who had been on her way from Britain to her daughter's wedding, said today that she owed her life to the doctors.

"I was in a very bad way and they all rushed to help," she said. "I wish I could thank them but I have no idea who they were, other than that they were going to a conference in Orlando."

Fletcher, who lives in Liverpool, northwestern England, spent two days in intensive care at the Charlotte Medical Center in North Carolina following the heart attack on November 7.

She spent three more days in the hospital, but still made it to her daughter Caroline's wedding.
