Singapore Airlines leading stewardess, 38, found dead in San Francisco hotel room

An air stewardess, who has been with Singapore Airlines for 16 years, was found dead in a San Francisco hotel room on Tuesday (Jan 31).

Penang-born Vanessa Yeap, 38, was a leading stewardess on a long-haul flight from Singapore to San Francisco, with a stopover at Hong Kong.

According to The Straits Times, Ms Yeap had said she was not feeling well when cabin crew arrived in San Francisco, about two days before the return flight.

Hours before the return flight at 1am on Feb 1, colleagues went up to Ms Yeap's hotel room to check on her when she did not appear at the lobby for checkout.

They found her dead in her room and attempts to resuscitate her proved to be futile.
