According to the British broadcaster BBC, Dr. Rashid Riaz of the National Health Service (NHS) from Hereford, England, was going to Verona from Birmingham to celebrate his vacation.
According to media reports, Dr. Rashid Riaz was on a flight when a 70-year-old woman’s condition suddenly deteriorated and she had difficulty breathing.
Seeing the condition of the woman, the flight attendant asked for the presence of a doctor on the flight, upon which Dr. Rashid Riaz of Pakistani origin came forward to help.
