Flight attendant offers to breastfeed the baby of a passenger who's milk had run out
Dedication to one's work always pays off, as does kindness: Patrisha Organo is a flight attendant who works for an airline in the Philippines. One day, Patrisha found herself able to assist a passenger in a very special way, proving not only that she can deal with any situation, but also has a very big heart. During a flight, Patrisha responded to the cries of a baby - the infant daughter of a passenger had started crying because she was hungry. But the desperate mother had run out of formula and it was then that Patrisha intervened without hesitating.
The flight had been like many others but turned out to be a very special one in the end. The young flight assistant had had a premonition but she certainly was not expecting what eventually happened. Patrisha recalls: "Everything was going smoothly until, shortly after takeoff, I heard the crying of a baby - crying that makes you want to do whatever you can to help. I approached the mother and asked her if everything was okay". The insistent crying of the baby was starting to annoy the other passengers, who were hoping to enjoy a peaceful flight, but, at the same time, the mother was helpless because she had run out of formula for the infant.
Patrisha remembers the moment she decided to intervene: "I told the mother she should feed her hungry baby, but, with tears in her eyes, she replied that she had run out of formula. Meanwhile, the passengers had begun to start staring at the crying baby". At that moment, Patrisha felt that she had to help the distraught mother.
Being a mother of a 9-month old herself, Patrisha was still producing milk and so she offered to breastfeed the hungry baby. Together, the women retired to a part of the aircraft where the baby could be nursed in privacy.
"I saw the relief in the mother's eyes," said Patrisha, "I continued to breastfeed the baby until she fell asleep, after which I escorted them back to their seat and, just before leaving, the mother thanked me from the bottom of her heart". The photo of Patrisha holding the baby has now been seen all over the internet, touching the emotions of many readers. Patrisha has shown that she has a big heart and that she knows how to help others - both as a flight attendant and as a human being.
