Camille Vasquez, one of Johnny Depp’s lawyers, is being called “Wonder Woman” by flight crew after assisting during a medical emergency in first class on an American Airlines Los Angeles to New York JFK flight.
According to TMZ, passengers reported that she “rushed to assist an elderly passenger who collapsed and hit his head midflight.”
The man, who is in his 70s, collapsed on the floor of the aircraft as he was walking past the now-nationally known lawyer who was traveling in the cabin with her bodyguard. Both assisted the man.
Apparently Ms. Vasquez was able to contact her brother in law, who is a doctor, and the man walked her through determining whether the ailing passenger was experiencing a heart attack or other high risk events.
Camille’s bodyguard took off his Apple watch to monitor the passenger’s heart rate.
Incredibly, folks say there was a surgeon on board who came forward to take over for Camille and her guard.
The aircraft returned to Los Angeles where the man was taken off of the aircraft by emergency medical personnel. Flight attendants on board gifted the lawyer a bottle of champagne and a bottle of red wine.
Here she is, seated on the American Airlines Airbus A321T:

I’m largely ignorant of the Johnny Depp – Amber Heard trial, except vaguely knowing that Heard pledged a contribution to the ACLU that was never made (other than in part, by Elon Musk on her behalf). The only piece of the trial I watched was the testimony of my former FlyerTalk.com co-moderator Ron Schnell (aviators99 there). So I did not know who Camille Vasquez was.
