A woman who cuddled and calmed a stranger’s son on a stressful plane journey has been labelled an “angel” for helping so selflessly.
Mum Becca Kinsey, from Dallas, Texas, was “on the verge of tears” when she boarded the plane with her sons James, two, and Wyatt, five.
In a heartwarming post on Facebook she wrote: “After about 45 min, this angel comes to the back and says ‘you look like you need a break’ and holds Wyatt for the rest of the flight AND walks him all the way to baggage claim, hands him to blake, hugs me and says ‘merry Christmas!’
The adorable photo shows the woman cuddling the little boy as he peacefully sleeps while sat on her knee.
Becca explained that this woman wasn’t the only one to help her along the way on the challenging trip.
She told of how she was on the verge of tears in the security queue because Wyatt was screaming and James was exhausted.
“Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says ‘here, jump in front of me! I know how it is,’ Becca wrote.
And as she attempted to carry everyone’s hand luggage she says another passenger said ‘hand me everything, I’ve got it’.
The second woman took everything for her and walked her and the boys to their gate to ensure they caught their flight.
After posting about the kindness she encountered on Facebook, Becca received many comments from people who found her story endearing.
“Angels among us,” one wrote, while another said: “Bless these amazing women.”
