A HONG KONG resident was charged with importing heroin into Australia after collapsing on a Cathay Pacific flight to Brisbane last Wednesday. Paul Victor John O'Shea, 27, was remanded in custody until August 12 when he appeared at Brisbane Magistrates' Court yesterday. No plea was taken. The New Zealander went into a coma during the flight after one of five condoms packed with more than 180 grams of heroin and carried in his stomach split open. A doctor on the flight tended him until the flight landed. O'Shea was admitted to the intensive care unit of Royal Brisbane Hospital, where he remained until his court appearance yesterday. An Australian Federal Police spokesman said O'Shea could face up to 20 years in jail. ''In Australian terms it's a pretty significant amount,'' he said. ''We treat this as a trafficking amount.''
