Is this how the plague begins?
A Singapore Airlines flight attendant was found dead in her hotel room in San Francisco Tuesday, after she reportedly told coworkers on her arriving flight that she was not feeling well. The Straits Times broke the news about the airline's "leading stewardess," saying that fellow crew members went to find her after she failed to meet them in the hotel lobby to head to their departing flight to Singapore, scheduled for 1 a.m. Wednesday at SFO.
As the Chronicle reports, the deceased woman has been identified as 38-year-old Vanessa Yeap, and she had arrived with the Singapore flight, SQ2, on January 28.
The SFPD say they are aware of the incident, and the Medical Examiner's Office is investigating Yeap's death.
Yeap's brother was apparently en route to SF to claim her body. The airline issued a statement about Yeap, who had worked for them for 16 years, saying, "Our immediate priority is to provide the necessary assistance to the family of the crew member. As the case is under the investigation of the local authorities, we are unable to share any further details."
