Plane crew saves distressed dog with oxygen mask during flight . A French bulldog in respiratory distress was saved by fast-thinking JetBlue crew members on a recent flight , according to a report. Two flight attendants first brought over ice in bags and then an oxygen mask to help Darcy breathe.

Darcy was treated for hypoxia – a lack of oxygen in the body – by her owner who held the oxygen mask over the dog’s face.

"I placed the mask over her face, and within a few minutes she became alert and after a short time she didn’t want the mask," Michelle said, ABC News reported. "I believe [crew members] Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine. I do not."

Burt thanked the JetBlue crew for helping Darcy during the trip.

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

"We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs," JetBlue said in a statement to ABC News. "We're thankful for our crew's quick thinking and glad everyone involved was breathing easier when the plane landed in Worcester."
