Paluk was advised a woman on the flight, a 43-year-old from Germany, was having a seizure. He used the plane’s medical kid to render first aid and stabilize the woman.
"Thanks to Trooper Paluk's quick actions, the woman remained stable until they could land in Portugal and she could get further medical aid," state police reported.
State police said they wished the woman a full recovery. They added Paluk's actions are another reminder this holiday season of what’s truly important.
