I kinda laughed at one part. No, don't let the captain go not because he is an esteemed colleague who I want to save unless it's a last resort. Don't let him go because his body might further damage the plane.
I guess they thought he was dead when they were contemplating letting him go. I hope.
That is an amazing scenario. I can't believe the Captain made it and was flying again just five months later.
