Weird news: 2 year old has cardiac arrest on a plane

A heart attack or any kind of cardiac problem is a matter of great distress to the affected person as well as to relatives and friends, but it is even more problematic when this happens in a kid. The incidence of heart problems is much lower in children, unless they are born with some of those problems, but yet, it is painful to see children in such a state. This is even more problematic when an incidence such as cardiac arrest happens on a plane, where there may not be the required specialized equipment or medical personnel; in such cases, one can only hope that things become better soon (link to article):

Authorities say a 2-year-old reported in cardiac arrest on a JetBlue flight from Pittsburgh to Boston was rushed to a hospital after landing at Logan International Airport. Massachusetts State Police Trooper Matthew Guarino says an ambulance met Flight 1786 about 5:40 p.m. Thursday after the pilot reported the medical emergency. Emergency responders blocked road intersections to rush the child to Massachusetts General Hospital. A state trooper drove the child's father and brother to the hospital.
