People who travel with their dogs can breathe a sigh of relief this morning especially after all of the tragic stories that have been happening lately on flights. Some positive news has emerged from the mostly-turbulent world of major airlines and their handling of pets on flights.

In a remarkable example of compassion, quick-thinking crew members of JetBlue helped save the life of a Darcy, a 3-year-old French bulldog who was on a flight with her human parents Michelle and Steven Burt from Florida to Massachusetts. Darcy was reportedly suffering from hypoxia, a lack of oxygen in the body.

Michelle Burt reportedly shared the news on Facebook and with ABC News this morning, crediting the crew for saving a life that some people may not consider as valuable because it was a canine.

Crew member Renaud Fenster, who appeared on “Good Morning America” to discuss the incident said it was unlike anything he had ever witnessed before during his 15-year-career.

“The dog started panting very rapidly and uncontrollably, and so as a French bulldog owner myself, I knew the dog was overheating and needed some ice. I brought the dog some ice, and that didn’t do anything,” Fenster told the media outlet, explaining that while passing through the cabin he noticed Michelle holding her ailing dog. “And right then and there, placed the oxygen mask on the dog and the dog revived like nothing else.”

The Burts expressed their appreciation to JetBlue and wanted this to serve as a reminder “that good people are doing good things on a daily basis even if it is in small ways or big ways!”
