Heartwarming, Man Comforts Frightened 96-year-old

A 96-year-old lady who was scared of flying received assistance from a kind-hearted “flight angel” seated beside her.

Megan Ashley, a passenger sitting nearby, saw what happened and shared it on Facebook. She was on a Southwest flight from San Diego (SAN) to Nashville (BNA) when she noticed a 96-year-old lady who hadn’t flown in 15 years.

The older woman requested to hold her neighbor’s hand when the plane took off and embraced him tightly when there was turbulence. The man, whose identity remains unknown, was kind and generous during the entire flight, and even afterwards. Ashley recounted his actions.

This gentleman I should say, gladly took her hand, let her hold onto him, calmed her by talking to her and explaining everything that was happening, and simply was that stranger there for her. He knew just what to do the entire flight to help. He helped her stand up to go to the restroom and watched her carefully walk down the aisle. It made me smile the whole flight as he comforted her. This man was her flight angel. He held her bag, helped her get off the plane and into the wheelchair, and when she got confused wondering where her daughter went (she called her her sister), he stayed with her until she caught up with her daughter who got separated from her.

It’s such a lovely gesture. I wish I could also help someone in a similar manner someday.

I began my day by reading two heartwarming stories to remind myself that not all news is negative. Despite the occasional incidents involving drunk flight attendants or unruly passengers, there are countless stories of compassion and love from both flight attendants and passengers. These uplifting tales have brightened my day, and I hope they bring joy to yours as well!

If you were touched by this heartwarming story, pass it along to others and help spread kindness together.
