Staff from the airline company worked overnight to put together a stretcher that took up the space of 9 passenger seats to accommodate the patient. 

The patient successfully boarded the OQ2366 flight accompanied by medical staff and family members. 

He also received assistance from the crew during the flight from Lhasa to Chongqing. 

The patient has since been sent to Xinan Hospital.
