JetBlue Flight Attendants Saved French Bulldog Who Couldn't Breathe on Flight

A French bulldog was rescued on a Jet Blue flight by a quick-thinking airline crew

Two JetBlue crew members are being hailed as heroes after saving a French bulldog's life on a recent flight, according to the dog's owners.

Michele and Steven Burt were returning from Orlando with their three dogs when Darcy, the French bulldog, began pushing her head against the mesh part of her carrier.

Burt identified Renaud and Diane as the flight attendants who helped save her dog.

Darcy, a three-year-old French bulldog, started panting heavily on her flight from Orlando to MA last week.

Flight attendants politely told her the dog had to remain under the seat due to regulations, but when she pointed out the medical crisis, they threw the rulebook aside and got her some bags of ice to help cool Darcy down.

She held Darcy in her lap, trying to calm her. Spencer then brought a small oxygen tank with a face mask out to use on the dog.

Burt noticed that Darcy was in distress while she was still in her carrier, but realized on the flight that Darcy's tongue had turned blue - a sign of oxygen deprivation.

Steven and Michelle Burt were traveling from Florida to Worcester when Darcy started suffering from a lack of oxygen.

"I thought perhaps she was warm and loosened the zipper on her carry-on so she could poke her face out", Mrs Burt wrote.

"Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not".

When that didn't work, Spencer - who has a French bulldog of his own, Penelope - suggested an oxygen mask. I know it's not a child or a person but she is a family member. Her owner confirmed that she had made a complete recovery.

JetBlue released a statement to ABC News about the incident, which could have been unsafe had flight crew not reacted.

JetBlue responded with this statement: "We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable flight, including those with four legs".

The Burt's sent a letter to the airline praising the flight crew for helping Darcy.
