Student collapses at Healthrow airport after stepping off the 14 hour flight and blacking out.
NVQ Student Visa holder Elizabeth arrived in London’s Heathrow Airport yesterday after a bumpy landing in bad weather. She felt a little dizzy after stepping off the 14 hour flight and then collapsed after blacking out.
Fortunately, British Airways staff were on hand to administer first aid and arrange for her to be taken to Hillingdon Hospital for checks and observation. BA staff also contacted her Godmother who was meeting her at the airport.
She was released after two hours, but said the nurses at the hospital, who were also Filipinos, were very friendly, helpful and very professional.
As a qualified nurse in the Philippines she was able to see first hand the casualty department of a busy hospital and is considering taking IELTS and the ONP course at a later date.
Elizabeth reported today at Majestic College, where she taking an NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) course in Health and Social Care, on a 3 year student visa.
Apart from a small bruise and cut to her face, she is feeling fine and has recovered from her eventful landing in the UK.
