A flight from Mumbai to Jaipu had to turn back after takeoff due to loss of cabin pressure.


Pilot error caused the Jet Airways flight 9W 697 to lose cabin pressure. An official of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation told reporters the cabin crew failed to flip a switch.

The plane landed safely and passengers, many of whom were suffering from bleeding ears and noses, were treated. Videos emerged online showing passengers wearing oxygen masks.

A statement from Jet Airways read, in part:

The B737 aircraft, with 166 guests and 5 crew landed normally in Mumbai. All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal. First aid was administered to few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc.

The airline said it was co-operating fully with the DGCA investigation. At least five passengers are being treated at Mumbai hospital.

According to Rajendra Patankar, COO at Dr Balabhai Nanavati hospital:

The patients are being evaluated by our ear, nose and throat consultant. They have suffered barotrauma of ears due to change in air pressure.

Many people thought the statement was a bit flippant.






Maybe they should rethink the statement. Whatever the case, they simply must do better.

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
