Shortly before departure, the police stopped a man in danger of dying from boarding the plane at Munich Airport.
According to the police, the man had visited the emergency room of a Munich hospital one day before the planned return flight to Washington. His life-threatening internal injuries were only noticed there when he had left the clinic after the examination. Since the doctors had no contact details for the patient, they alerted the police. The officials found the man just in time before boarding at the gate.
