Flight attendant TikToker deletes video after revealing what happens when a passenger dies

A video of a flight attendant explaining what happens when a passenger dies mid-flight has gone viral, freaking out frequent flyers across the net.

US-based TikTok user and flight attendant Sheena Marie posted a now-deleted video telling her followers that when someone dies on a plane, they are often left in their seats until the plane reaches its finals destination.

“If someone is already incapacitated and they’re like laying in their seat and you know they’re dead and everyone around them is like ‘they’re dead’, we’re obviously going to check the pulse and all that,” she said in the video, according to Yahoo Finance.

“If they have a heart attack and die, and there is literally nothing we can do about it, and we can’t start CPR and stuff like that, we are just going to wait until we get to our final destination we are going to keep that dead body where they are at.”

According to Sheena, if there is no extra room on board the flight, like a back row of seats, then some passengers may wind up sitting next to the deceased person for the rest of the flight.

“Just know, I’m sitting on someone’s lap if there are no more seats,” said one TikTok user.

“If a person next to me on a plane dies and y’all try to leave them next to me, I will literally jump out of the window,” said another.

According to news.com.au, there is also a secret code word for dead bodies on planes: Jim Willson.

The codeword is used so transport services or undertakers can talk to flight attendants about the body without anyone knowing.

The name comes from Jim Wilson Trays, which are often used as a shipping container packed with ice to preserve the body.

Last month, Kat Kamalani, who is also a flight attendant, posted a video exposing the one thing passengers should never consume while they are in the air.

She explained that passengers should only drink liquids that come from a bottle or a can because the water tanks on board are “never cleaned” and “disgusting”.

“Talk to a flight attendant, because we rarely drink the coffee or tea because it comes from the same water tank,” Kamalani said, adding that the coffee machines are only cleaned if they are broken.
