An air hostess from Philippines has won a number of hearts on social media after she came to the rescue of a crying baby onboard a flight.  Reports suggested that the air hostess, Patrisha Organo, breastfed a stranger’s baby to calm her when she was crying persistently during the flight.

Patrisha shared her experience on her profile on social giant Facebook. She said that breastfeeding the child made her flight a special one. “Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother’s milk,” she captioned her social media profile post.

Actually the incident is soon after the Philippine Airline flight took off, Patrisha heard an infant crying persistently when she went to the seat of the baby’s mother, and she discovered that other passengers were visibly troubled. Patrisha suggested the mother of the baby to feed the child so that she would stop crying.

But then she saw the mother “teary eyed” as she  told her that she had run out of formula milk, which the baby was supposed to be fed with.

 

“I felt a pinch in my heart. There’s no formula milk onboard. I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered,” wrote the air hostess on FB.

“I saw the relief on her mother’s eyes. I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep . I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me,” Patrisha wrote furthur.
