Mother Thanks American Airlines Crew For Life-Saving Help After Her Baby Had A Seizure Mid-Flight

Last week, Janay Flowers experienced one of the most frightening moments of her life when her baby girl had a seizure during a flight. Thanks to the efforts of a diligent crew, the pair made it home safe and sound.

On Thursday, Flowers was traveling with her 11-month-old daughter, Nevaeh, from Tampa, Florida to Dallas, Texas when her baby had a febrile seizure.

The 28-year-old mother was traveling alone and cried for help. “Two people immediately came to aid my baby and found that she was burning up,” Flowers later wrote in an Instagram post detailing the incident.

I would like to thank all of the passengers and flight crew who assisted my baby girl and I aboard #AmericanAirlines Flight 607 from Tampa to DFW on April 25, 2019. Nevaeh is doing well now, but on that flight the scariest moment of my life unfolded before my eyes. My precious baby girl had a febrile seizure when we were about 10 minutes out from landing in Dallas. I was traveling alone with Nevaeh and did not have a clue what to do but cry out for help. Two people immediately came to aid my baby and found that she was burning up. They took her onesie off and she was running a serious fever, her toes were blue, and she could barely breath. They called out for any doctors on the plane and about 3-4 additional people came running to help also. God had His hands on us. All of these people worked diligently to cool my baby down while she was having a seizure. One man went to the front of the plane to ensure that the EMS was at the gate as soon as we landed. Another man got an oxygen tank and administered it to Nevaeh. Another man was taking her pulse. As soon as our plane landed, we all rushed to the front of the plane while they grabbed all of my belongings. One man carried my baby, one man kept thumping her foot to make her cry, I sang you are my sunshine and prayed like I never prayed before. It seemed to last forever. As soon as the plane doors opened, the paramedics were there and transported us to the EMS and rushed us to the ER of Baylor Medical Center – Grapevine. Those nurses and doctors took great care of my baby and made her better. My family and I are beyond grateful for all of the care and treatment given to our baby. I am so thankful to God that He put the right people in the right place at the right time! God kept us and worked through those angels who cared for Nevaeh. If you can, please tag @americanair in the comments, because I would love for them to share my gratitude with the angels who assisted us and let them know she’s well!

Flowers wrote that the passengers and crew worked hard to keep Nevaeh stable and cool while the plane landed.

“Another man got an oxygen tank and administered it to Nevaeh. Another man was taking her pulse,” she wrote. “As soon as our plane landed, we all rushed to the front of the plane while they grabbed all of my belongings. One man carried my baby, one man kept thumping her foot to make her cry.”

“I sang you are my sunshine and prayed like I never prayed before. It seemed to last forever.”

Shortly after landing Flowers and her baby girl were rushed to Baylor Medical Center-Grapevine where Nevaeh was successfully treated.

The grateful mother thanked the airline and everyone involved in helping during the incident.

“I would like to thank all of the passengers and flight crew who assisted my baby girl and I aboard #AmericanAirlines Flight 607 from Tampa to DFW on April 25, 2019. Nevaeh is doing well now, but on that flight the scariest moment of my life unfolded before my eyes.”

An American Airlines spokesperson named Ross Feinstein reportedly told USA Today that the company is glad to hear Nevaeh is doing well.

“This medical emergency last week highlights the tremendous care and professionalism of American’s team members, and specifically, in this situation, our flight attendants and DFW team. We are proud of our colleagues and are grateful to them and our customers, who also stepped up to help a family in need, for their quick actions,” Feinstein added.

Commenters on Flowers’s Instagram post were also grateful to see the pair safe and sound.
