A nurse said the crew forced passengers -- including children -- to walk by the uncovered woman’s corpse. – An 83-year-old woman died during a recent Spirit Airlines flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to the Juan Santamaría International Airport in Costa Rica, the airline

Spirit Airlines , however, said its crew did all that it could to assist the woman, offered to move her but that she refused, so everyone had to stay put – including the alleged attacker – as the Spirit Airlines issued a statement that detailed the steps its crew took once they were made aware of the situation.

A nurse says Spirit Airlines needs to have more sensitivity training of its employees when it comes to emergencies.

Nathalie Albino was traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Juan Santamaría International Airport in Costa Rica on Friday night when she helped assist with an 83-year old woman in distress.

The woman died after 35 minutes of CPR but Spirit left her uncovered in the same seat while fellow passengers had to walk by.

Albino said they requested a blanket to cover the woman’s corpse, but the crew did not provide one.

“We had to take her sweater off of her and physically put it over her head,” Albino said, according to Local10.com.

Aeroflot pilot dies from heart attack during flight: report

  Aeroflot pilot dies from heart attack during flight: report The aviator reportedly died from a heart attack in the cockpit while flying on Sunday.The 49-year-old Aeroflot captain was piloting flight SU1546 from Moscow to Anapa when he became “ill,” prompting the Airbus 320 to land early at Platov International Airport in Rostov-on-Don, the Daily Mirror reports.

In a statement, Spirit spokesman Stephen Schuler said the woman “became erratic and irate and was removed from the aircraft with the assistance of law enforcement. “We apologize to our Guests who had to witness this and for the inconvenience of the delay. Safety is our top priority at Spirit Airlines .”

Jackson claims she then felt the man stick his hand down the back of her pants. 'He slid his hands in my pants One passenger took a photo of the alleged attacker (above) as he left the plane. Spirit Airlines has responded by releasing a statement saying the flight crew wanted to move the alleged

Albino said they also requested to move the body away from the other passengers, but a flight attendant allegedly told her, ‘No we have to buckle her back into her seat,’” Albino said.

“It was pretty disrespectful,” said Albino’s fiancé, Jonathan Bunda, who was also on the flight. “You know, imagine if it was your mother or grandmother.”

Albino also claimed that when the flight landed, all passengers – including children – were forced to walk past the woman’s body.

But Spirit Airlines spokesman Erik Hofmeyer refuted some of those claims.

“We deplaned first (because) that was what we were required to do by (Costa Rican) law,” he said. “Saying that we forced people (out of the plane first) is a flat-out lie.”

Hofmeyer also noted that Spirit flight attendants are trained to handle medical emergencies and that the flight did not divert elsewhere because at the time of the emergency it was closest to Costa Rica.
