Quick thinking cabin crew saved the life of a holidaymaker when he became gravely ill while stranded midair on board a flight.

Carl Harrison has now thanked air stewardess Natalie Bond for coming to his rescue when his body went into spasm and his temperature rocketed to 44 degrees Celsius - around four degrees higher than the temperature at which the body starts shutting down - while thousands of feet in the air.

The 59-year-old still had more than an hour to endure on board the flight before it touched down at Robin Hood Airport and paramedics whisked him away to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
