A flight crew jumped into action recently to save a four-legged life in the air. 

A passenger's French bulldog was in distress on a JetBlue flight from Florida to Massachusetts last week.

Three-year-old Darcy was struggling to breathe. Her gums and tongue began turning blue. 

Two flight attendants used ice, water, and an oxygen mask to help the dog recover.

Darcy is now doing fine. 

Her grateful owner publicly thanked the attendants for their attention and help, through a letter which a friend posted to Facebook.

JetBlue released this statement:

"We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs. We're thankful for our crew's quick thinking and glad everyone involved was breathing easier when the plane landed in Worcester."
