    Unless there were two incidents around the same time, I was on this plane. LH 447 Denver to Frankfurt landed at St John's with a passenger medical emergency. Boeing 747, no mechanical problems. Passenger placed in ambulence alive! Congrats to the flight crew and doctors on board.

    This news story does not mention the airline and flight number or where the flight originated from. Sketchy news coverage.
