Sonia Bagga, 39, went into anaphylactic shock after eating two bites of a chicken wrap that she didn’t know contained sesame seeds while on-board a BA flight returning home in September from a family holiday in Dubai. A doctor on board recognised the symptoms and reacted quickly by finding her adrenaline auto-injector and injecting her with adrenaline.
Lynne Regent said: “We hope Sonia has recovered both physically and mentally after what must have been a horrific experience. We urge individuals to continue to ask about ingredients when being served food, regardless of location and always carry your adrenaline auto-injector’s”
