A Russian guitarist was so musty that a plane had to do an emergency landing per passenger complaints. The man, Andrey Suchilin, 58, was removed from a May 29 flight going from Spain to the Netherlands when passengers complained of feeling so nauseous from the stench they started fainting.
Tragically, the man had necrotic tissue after he developed necrosis while vacationing in Spain. The musician’s health insurance had expired and he could not get medical care in Spain before boarding the plane.
Necrosis is a medical condition in which the body’s tissues die after being starved of oxygen. It can be caused by a number of things including injury, infection, frostbite, and deep vein thrombosis. It can be treated, but the affected areas often have to be removed surgically and in a timely fashion. Lesson: Your medical insurance is more important than your mortgage, rent or vacation. You can ALWAYS find another place to live and another time to travel.
