Iconic Indian actress Raveena Tandon hailed a Pakistani air traffic controller on Monday for his heroics in saving a Jaipur flight from disaster. Tandon took to Twitter thanking the Pakistani citizen,"When humanity wins over politics. Pakistani air traffic controller saves a Jaipur to Muscat flight from disaster."

One-hundred and fifty passengers were on-board the aircraft, the report said.

The plane was flying over Karachi when it was caught in the middle of a weather pattern with lots of lightning that could have resulted in catastrophe. (oooooooooooo!!!!)

Lightening did hit the plane and the plane dropped down from an altitude of 36,000 feet to 34,000 feet almost immediately.

As a result, the pilot initiated emergency protocol and broadcast Mayday' to nearby stations... while the rest of the passengers chanted "GAOOOOOO MATA! GAOOOOOO MATA! GAOOOOOO MATA!" (Mother Cow! Mother Cow! Mother Cow!)... no doubt. Some even broke out the cow dung and performed "anti-crash cow dung ritual"... also no doubt.

The air traffic controller from Pakistan responded to the call of the captain of the plane and directed it through the dense air traffic in the vicinity for the remainder of the journey in Pakistani airspace.
