Airline Tells Dying Cancer Patient She's Too Sick to Fly

Last weekend, Crystal Kim and her daughter Mimi, were prepared to board a Korean Airlines flight out of SeaTac, Washington, to Crystal's country of birth, but the gate agent denied the elder woman boarding because she looked too frail to fly and if she were to die in flight, it would traumatize other passengers. But, Crystal -- who was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer last February -- is fit to fly. In fact, she had two doctors' notes giving her the OK. She tells KGW News, "I just want to go home to die there."
