[REAL ATC] Las Vegas controller suffers a stroke while on duty.

1:25 subtitle is wrong. Should read "is there somebody up there that knows what they're doing" instead of "It's a comedy up there".

Either way, that pilot was an asshole for saying that. You're not just given an ATC job without knowing what you're doing. Something was clearly wrong, and the fact that the pilot defaulted to making such a remark is simply a testament to his character.

Does it really matter if the subtitle was a little incorrect, a woman was having a stroke and you're worried about the subtitles? You need to get your priorities straight.

@VASAviation - 4:47 "any traffic in the area" instead of "and the traffic up ahead" -- Victor, I'd be happy to help with transcription and captioning if you'd like. I've been a transcriptionist for 4 years, with prior captioning experience (~2 years). Even if you just wanted someone to look over and proofread your captions before publishing, I'd be happy to do that. Let me know! Also, I know this one is nitpicky-- because it has the same meaning regardless. But I've noticed errors like this in quite a bit of your uploads, and sometimes it _does_ change the meaning of the conversation. This isn't meant as a jab towards you; I know you put a lot of work into making this channel. So, please don't take it that way. I just want to offer my help 🥰

So was this a stroke or drug induced? I know title says stroke but I looked up and it says she was “incapacitated “ and no longer works for ATC. Some claims it was not medical which is why they were vague.

You don't submit your resignation 5 days later if you had a stroke, you go out on a medical retirement (a la Long Term Disability). Also, the FAA would have been incredibly quick to come out after and say it had been a "medical event" or "medical emergency" which they did not do. Read between the lines on this one and it looks very clear that her actions (and the funding cuts / reductions in headcount to the FAA) put a lot of lives at risk.

I suffered a stroke while in my early 40's. I'm now in my early 60's. Thank God I was home at the time. My speech was just like hers and I couldn't talk as well. At the time I was a police dispatcher in a small town and there was only one person per shift. So I was thankful I was not on duty. There ARE warning signs But I was unaware of them at the time.

This was incredibly uncomfortable to watch. Kudos to the pilots for taking some control of the situation and communicating with each other.

@RJ Spinello My understanding was that she was handling both tower and ground traffic by herself on the day this occurred. Both being handled by the ATC happens at smaller airports, but she should have had help for this sized airport. Plus backup to help with this sort of medical emergency.

There were several comms with a med flight during this episode, and I’m surprised they didn’t pick up on these cues. Even coming in blind on this type of communication, it was evident very early that something was significantly wrong with the ATC, and does indeed highlight the need for at least two people in the tower at any one time. Kudos to the pilot who acted on his instincts, but this all just took way too long. The ATC that came in to take care of things was fantastic. The way he stepped in and got everyone going again and the right order was phenomenal!

Wow, just wow. I'm at 8:08 and had to pause to say this. Sorry but my jaw is on the floor. "I'm appalled". I've watched and heard all sorts of videos of aircraft and listened to countless atc interactions. But this one takes the trophy. Now after hearing this audio. Guess what ? This is scary shit. Anyone of us with a breath and heartbeat at anytime at any age can have a medical emergency. It has always been my unprofessional opinion that ALL airport towers are occupied with no less than 2 souls at minimum at all times 24/7. Case in point. This vid. DAAAAAAH!!!! Dumb Ass FAA. People's Lives are at your mercy. This also goes to unmanned airports where pilots are on a communication per pilot system. IGNORANT!!!!!!! People die because of this nonsense. If the shit has paved runways for something with wings and souls on board then the tower must be occupied with no less than 2 souls 24/7. No matter the funds needed. Liife is too precious. Much respect to air industry and much and forever love to GOD. Because after all the vids and audios I have watched and all the aircraft in the sky's ,too me,anyway, It is only by his Grace with all the flights 24/7 takeoff and land thousands of times a day flawlessly around the world. My thoughts and prayers for this atc worker. Too the FAAAAAA and Governments across the globe, mandate at once ,the "No less than 2 rule" Much respect from Atlanta Ga. God Bless All

@Ben Rosenberg It sounded consistent with a stroke to me too but I have read so many comments saying that after they launched an investigation, they reported her to have had drugs and alcohol in her system.
