American Airlines is in the news again for all the wrong reasons. :-(

A dead woman was dragged off a flight in front of passengers

Doesn't this company know how to do anything right?

They probably don't, but this wasn't American Airlines. The responders worked for Alina Medical, and I expect they were more concerned with trying to save her than with her state of dress. Paramedics get my vote every time. Their jobs are difficult both emotionally and physically, often dangerous, and generally thankless. They are true heroes.

So you think that it's ok to drag a dead person out of a plane?

What's wrong with using a stretcher?

No space for one.
A back board would probably be narrow enough.

I can hear it now. No respect for the dead.

Edit: You snuck in one there Grant.
Guess it depends on how they did it.

Those " paramedics " didn't seam to be showing much respect for the body . In this country even the dead are handled with respect , if it was anyone in my family they " delt " with like that the paramedics WOULD be needing hospital treatment thenself and ain't joking around !!!
Life is what you make of it :-)

The best solution would have been to leave the poor lady in the toilet, deplane the passengers & then deal with the body in a respectful manner.

In today's society, it seems common sense has fallen by the wayside :-(

And I can hear the complaints about the lack of respect for the dead by leaving the body in the toilet.

Dead bodies can be difficult to move in the best of circumstances.

True, which makes the best solution is to deplane the passengers first.

I agree, but you'll have to convince the accountants

I just hope that there were no children on that plane to witness the incident.

I might get some flak for this. But if the woman had to be removed before the passengers. Could they have gotten a few blankets and wrapped her up. And carried her mortal body off the plane.

Now that was probably too sensible for them to do Admiral.

Probably, but that would make it even more difficult to remove the body.

Whatever they did would be considered the wrong thing to do.
The best thing would have been as was suggested earlier- leave the body in the toilet. Once all the passengers were off the plane, then deal with the body.

A Microsoft robot got the highest all-time score in 'Ms. Pac-Man'

Game over, man.

A Microsoft-made artificial-intelligence system has achieved a perfect score of 999,990 points on the Atari 2600 version of the classic "Ms. Pac-Man" — making it very likely the first time anybody, human or robot, has "beaten" the game. Ever.

That notion is backed up by Highscore.com, a resource for tracking high scores in the still competitive classic-arcade-gaming scene. Per that site, the highest score ever recorded in this version of "Ms. Pac-Man" was 266,330, by a player in Brazil. ...

If you watch the video, the game is not over and does not reset at 999,990. It keeps going as it is; the score just starts over at 0 because it's not designed for seven digits.

I used to be pretty good at the real arcade game. I think my highest score ever was about 120,000.

The surprising number of American adults who think chocolate milk comes from brown cows

Hilarous:)
I wonder how many of those knows what a Hot Dog consist of.
I heard that some kids here thinks that Fish Fingers are something swimming in the sea.
