Widely known for her roles in the sitcom "The Facts of Life" and movie "The Breakfast Club," the actress said that the airline made an emergency landing for her dad, Bob Ringwald, as he faced a medical emergency.
Ringwald said a doctor who happened to be onboard during her father's health episode also helped them.
"Because of their speed and professionalism, my father's life was saved," she detailed in the tweet.
We all love to publicly vent against airlines but today I would like to thank Southwest Airlines and the doctor who happened to be onboard. They emergency landed the plane for my dad. Because of their speed and professionalism, my father’s life was saved. #SouthWest #gratitude— Molly Ringwald (@MollyRingwald) April 26, 2018
