 Yesterday, the case of an Albanian cardiologist who saved the life of a Irish plane passenger traveling with his wife made some noise.

It is about Kristo Papa, a cardiologist who is one of the many specialists who have left Albania to work abroad. Today, he serves in one of Ireland's hospitals where he lives with his wife and his 2 year old son.

Contacted by Albanian media, Kristo Papa, showed the details of the flight, where the Albanian doctor had to make a quick intervention to a 63-year-old Irishman.

Papa said if the intervention would not be completed in time, the Irish citizen would have lost his life due to his breathing problems.

I was together with my wife. We were traveling from the city of Cork, Ireland to Verona for job engagements. About 40 minutes before the plane landed one of the passengers on this trip was feeling bad and the aircraft crew called for a medical doctor on board. I got up immediately. The patient was a 63-year-old Irish man who suffered loss of feelings for about a minute. I gave first aid after finding out that his blood pressure was low and had difficulty in breathing, this is called lipothymia. If he did not get the first aid he would have lost his life. I assisted until the plane landed and I stayed there until the arrival of Verona's emergency.
