Family Pushes For Epinephrine Auto Injectors On Planes After Mid-Flight Allergy Attack

A family vacation turned into an emergency on the way home when 10-year-old Long Island boy Luca Ingrassi suffered a severe allergic reaction mid-flight.

Luca had no idea he was allergic to tree nuts when he and his family boarded the plane, but 15 minutes after consuming a single cashew, Luca started complaining of stomach and chest pain, and a tickling sensation in his throat. Luca was experiencing anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction.

Thanks to quick-thinking passengers and staff on the American Airlines plane, Luca survived.

Now his mother, Francine, is calling for change and has started a petition to make all airlines have two pack Epinephrine Auto Injectors on all flights made available to all passengers who have allergies, and for those who are unaware they have an allergy like Luca.

Here is the link to the petition https://chn.ge/2EGBNqH
