An emergency medical technician dragged a dying woman’s half-naked body past passengers on a commercial flight in Minnesota.

The woman suffered a medical emergency Monday while in the bathroom of an American Airlines Boeing 737 flying from Dallas to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, reported the Star-Tribune.

An EMT came onto the plane at the airport, removed the woman from the restroom and dragged her face-up by the hands through the plane, another passenger said.

The woman, who appeared to be in her 40s, was naked from the waist down and in full view of the other roughly 150 passengers, the passenger said.

“The EMT was out of line on that one,” said passenger Art Endress, of Dallas. “Also, the flight attendants could have thrown a blanket on her.”

The 63-year-old Endress said flight attendants determined a passenger was still in the restroom as they began preparations for landing, and they asked for medical assistance after finding the woman unresponsive.

A doctor and nurse on board attempted to revive her with a defibrillator, and emergency crews came on board once the plane landed.

Other passengers were kept on the plane for about an hour, until a tarp could be set up in the jetway to shield the stricken woman, who was later declared dead.

Another passenger told Endress the woman had gotten up from her seat about halfway through the flight and did not return.

The woman was later identified as 48-year-old Theresa Hines, of Carrollton, Texas, and her family has established a fundraiser to help offset her funeral costs.

REVEALED: Kayleigh McEnany called Biden a ‘man of the people’ who connects better with the ‘middle class’ than Trump

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a loyal mouthpiece for President Donald Trump, both in presidential policy and against his political opponents in the election campaign. She has echoed Trump's attacks on Joe Biden, calling him a "radical socialist" and using monikers like "Sleepy."

But on Monday, CNN unearthed audio of McEnany from 2015 during an interview on New York AM970, in which she offered a very different view.

"I think the Republicans run into a problem if it is Joe Biden and if it is maybe a Trump on the other side," said McEnany. "Because Joe Biden, one of the things he is remarkable at is really kind of being a man of the people and resonating with middle class voters. Feeling like — coming off as human. His gaffes — as much as we make fun of them — to a certain extent they make him look human. So not, since he's likable."

Trump whines that he shouldn’t be blamed for ‘Lock Her Up!’ chants — as his supporters chant it

Published

President Donald J. Trump refuted responsibility for his rally cries of "lock her up" during a campaign stop in Martinsburg, Penn. Monday.

"Lock her up," the crowds chanted. To which Trump replied, "Now [the chants] are happening with [Joe] Biden because that's a crime family, frankly. But every time that happens, when they say, 'lock her up,' they always blame me and I have nothing to do with it."

‘Segregated South type behavior’: Americans are furious at ‘scared’ Texas’s Gov. Abbott deploying Guard troops to the polls

Published

on

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that he is deploying troops to the polls in the state, something that a president can't even do because it can suppress the vote.

“The Texas Army National Guard said Monday it had been ordered to dispatch 1,000 troops to five major cities around the state in conjunction with the Nov. 3 election,” San Antonio Express-News reported on Monday.

It sent people into flames of rage claiming that it was an example of a Republican governor behaving like a segregationist from the 1950s.
