On Tuesday, Southwest flight attendant, Maurice ‘Reggie’ Shepperson, died at Henderson Hospital in Las Vegas where he had been confined since checking himself in on July 7th with breathing difficulty.

Reportedly, Shepperson spent weeks on a ventilator before he died on Tuesday.
USA Today reports,
He was on a ventilator and died early Tuesday, his mother, Dawn Shepperson. A nurse told her it was from COVID-19.
Shepperson, 36, was fully vaccinated, his mother and Hildreth said. He loved to fly and took every precaution, wearing a mask, constantly washing his hands, sanitizing surfaces, and wiping everything down in hotel rooms, Hildreth said.
“It hurt me so bad because it was just so quick,” Dawn Shepperson said. “I didn’t have time to really even acknowledge what is going on. This is mind-blowing. It’s not real. It’s not real. It’s not real.”
“He said, ‘I have pain, a lot of pain everywhere,” Shepperson-Bernard said of her son, “he was so sick he couldn’t get up.”
