JetBlue Crew Saves Dog In Distress With Oxygen Mask

A local couple is crediting a JetBlue flight crew with saving the life of their French bulldog.

Michelle and Steven Burt have been traveling back and forth between their homes in Boston, Mass. and Florida for 12 years with their small dogs "without incident".

Burt immediately noticed that "her tongue was blue".

Two flight attendants first brought over ice in bags and then an oxygen mask to help Darcy breathe.

Two JetBlue flight attendants are being called heroes for saving a dog in distress.

She held Darcy in her lap, trying to calm her.

"Renaud, who explained that he also had a French Bulldog "Penelope" brought a small oxygen tank with a mask attached and offered it saying, 'Maybe this will help, '" Burt wrote, according to MassLive. They pulled her out of the carrier and noticed that she was panting, panicking, and her tongue was turning blue, a sign of not getting enough oxygen.

As such, the film is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content than previous DC comic book films, Variety adds. The Joker movie has been a bit of an enigma amongst DC Comics fans, ever since it was first announced in September of past year .

"I applied the mask to her face and it really was nearly an immediate response; her eyes opened wider and it was just apparent that it was effective", Burt told MNN.

"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. But even pups need saving sometimes, which is where JetBlue flight attendants Renaud Spencer and Diane Asher come in.

Photos of Darcy with the oxygen mask over her mouth have spread across social media.

"We all are affected by cabin pressure and oxygen fluctuations, human, canine and feline, etc., but the fact that the Attendants were responsive and attentive to the situation may have saved Darcy's life", a Facebook post written by Darcy's owner, Michele Burt, said.

Burt confirmed that Darcy made a complete recovery and is fine post-flight.

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

JetBlue released the following statement: "We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs".
