Plane makes emergency landing due to passenger’s ‘unbearable’ smell

Have you ever sat next to someone on a plane who smells far from pleasant? Being arrogant aside, do not be shy to politely inform that person about his stench because you might actually help him discover an underlying disease.

A similar incident happened back in 2018 when a Russian male passenger boarded an Amsterdam-bound Transavia flight with an “unbearable” stench, not knowing that the cause of his smell is a life-threatening disease.

According to several online sources, the Russian passenger named Andrey Suchillin reportedly got inside the plane and his co-passengers started passing out and vomiting because of his smell.

A passenger said that he smelled so bad that it was like he did not shower for several weeks.

Because of this, the flight, which came from the Spanish island of Gran Canaria, had to make an emergency landing in Portugal.

It was there when they found out that the man smelled bad, not because of poor hygiene, but because he was already suffering from tissue necrosis. The tissues in his body were already dying giving him the foul smell.

The passenger contracted the disease while he is on vacation in the Canary islands. Suchilin’s wife, Linda, said that her husband sought medical attention but he was only given antibiotics since doctors said that it was just a “normal beach infection”.

As the pilot diverted the flight, airplane crew had to put the Russian passenger in the bathroom.

When the plane landed in Faro, Portugal, the passenger was removed from the plane and placed on a bus by medical personnel.

The airlines stated “medical reasons” as to why they decided to make an emergency landing.

Unfortunately, Suchilin later succumbed to the disease.

“Due to privacy legislation, however, we cannot disclose details about individual cases. What we can say is that our crew has acted correctly and carefully in accordance with the applicable procedures,” the airlines’ spokesperson said.
