    That was my father, Lyle Daniels, who worked on him in flight. A regular person who stepped up and tried to save his life.

    I was sitting 2 rows behind Christopher during the flight. I was appauled at the lack of training, complete chaos, unpreparedness, exhibited by the flight attendants. The passenger who was a former paramedic, worked so hard to revive Christopher with very little assistance from the flight crew. Spirit airlines should take responsibility for thier flight crews actions or lack there of.
