A six-year-old girl saved her life after noticing that she was having a stroke on an airplane.
Jaideen Hajipaulis told a hostess that Alex, 39, was unconscious on the Ryanair flight to Crete.
It is thought to have been caused by an air bubble in a vein that traveled to his brain when the air pressure changed during the rise of the plane.
A doctor recognized his symptoms and the jet made an emergency stop in Brindisi, Italy, where Alex underwent surgery.
After ten days of coma, she was paralyzed in the legs and left arm and taken home to Wolverhampton after a £ 25,000 funding appeal.
Alex said, “Jaideen knew something was wrong, even though he was only six years old. I am so proud of you. “
Her mother Lorna Hajipaulis, 66, returned to the UK from Crete to take care of her daughter and two full-time grandchildren.
Lorna said, “I learned from Alex that she got on the plane and then, a few hours later, someone called me from the hospital to say she had had a stroke.

“We didn’t know if she would succeed, and everyone spoke Italian and told us it would cost thousands to save Alex.
“I had to contact relatives and even create a GoFundMe page to raise the £ 25,000 needed to bring Alex home to the UK.
“Alex didn’t have the right kind of insurance that would cover what had happened to her, so we had to suddenly collect all this money to bring her home safely.”
