Imagine having to sit through a 14 hour flight while having a heart attack. Sounds unbelievable? Tell that to BBC radio presenter Max Pearson.
Pearson reportedly suffered cardiac arrest while flying home from covering the Japanese tsunami, and had to endure the 14-hour Singapore Airlines flight because the airline had refused to divert the jet to the nearest hospital:
A BBC source said: 'It is lucky he managed to survive. It looks as if he
was attended to by one of the passengers, who was a doctor, during the
'He says he asked for them to redirect him to hospital but it didn't
happen. After that it was touch-and-go whether he was going to make the

According to colleagues, Pearson has been left with long-term heart
damage as a result, and plans to take legal action against the airline.
