When an airline passenger had a medical emergency, she was fortunate enough to be on a flight with not one, but three doctors. Forty-five minutes after taking off from Miami for Los Angeles, the flight attendant asked if there were any doctors on board over the intercom. Dr. Salima Thobani and her husband, Dr. Rahim Govani, rushed to help the woman, who was having chest pains. That’s when their friend, Dr. Nilesh Vora, joined in. The plane made an emergency landing that saved the woman’s life.

One clue: the brown and beige sandals were rather heavy for such a simple looking pair.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, a man traveling from Jamaica tried to smuggle more than a pound of cocaine inside a pair of sandals.

On Friday, officers said they found a white powdery substance and a tiny drug balloon, or pellet, concealed in the casual footwear during a baggage inspection. The items weighed about 1.3 pounds and field tested positive for cocaine.

They also discovered that he swallowed more than two dozen pellets filled with cocaine.
