Molly Ringwald Thanks Southwest Airlines, Doctor For Saving Her Father's Life


The actress detailed how the airline made an emergency landing so that her father, 77-year-old jazz pianist Bob Ringwald, could receive medical attention when he suffered some sort of episode mid-flight.

"I would like to thank Southwest Airlines and the doctor who happened to be onboard. Due to their speed and professionalism, my father's life was saved", she said, adding the hashtag #gratitude.

Meanwhile, the airlines company also reached out to the actress and asked for her to direct message the names of the crew that assisted her father in order to give appreciation and recognition.

Southwest Airlines responded on social media by tweeting: "Molly, we are so happy to hear that your father was taken care of by our crew today".

The news came as a good review for Southwest Airlines, which is still reeling from a tragedy last week.

Like her father, she is also a jazz musician and has recorded her own solo jazz albums and has also collaborated with his band, the Fulton Street Jazz Band. In this photo, a Southwest Airlines jet sits on the runway at Philadelphia International Airport after it was forced to land with an engine failure in Philadelphia, April 17, 2018. The passenger who lost her life was identified as 43-year-old Jennifer Riordan from Albuquerque, New Mexico. There were under 10 individuals who were harmed as well.

"We are deeply saddened to confirm that there is one fatality resulting from this accident".

She isn't one to shy away for being close to her dad either.

Southwest Airlines later released the following statement. "Now she's too busy".

Ringwald played Claire Standish in the 1985 film The Breakfast Club.

Riordan was sitting on the left side of the plane when something heavy flew into the window on her side after the engine exploded, leaving a large hole near her.

Additionally that month, pilots were compelled to redirect the plane heading to Dallas after the lodge filled with smoke from an electrical fire.
