The flight was only one hour long, between two cities in Brazil. It was also the first trip of 2-year-old Andrei and his family. As soon as the plane took off, the toddler became very agitated. He didn’t want to put on his seat belt and he started crying inconsolably. Nothing seemed to help. Seeing the despair of the boy and his parents, the flight attendant decided to take action.
She gave the boy a bag of stickers to play with, but it didn’t work. Then, in a gesture of empathy and love, she asked permission to take the child in her arms, and with affection and tenderness gently swayed him back and forth, softly caressing his head. The result: the child stopped crying, and even fell asleep in her arms.
A pastor who was on the flight filmed everything and posted it on social networks. The video went viral:
