Flight attendant’s incredibly sweet gesture to mum after baby throws up on plane

With Brexit rapidly approaching and the tragic news of Luke Perry’s death hitting us all hard, you might be in need of a lighter read.

Well, you’ve come to the right place, because we’re taking a look at some incredible random acts of kindness.

And it’s all thanks to a writer named Nicole Cliffe, who tweeted on Monday, asking people to share the nicest thing a stranger has ever said or done for them.

Nicole went on to discuss the time her baby got sick on a plane and threw up all over her just as they were leaving the gate.

She claims the plane had to return to the airport, so her seat could be replaced.

“Everyone hated me and I was standing, covered in puke, holding my now only diaper-clad baby and trying not to cry while business travelers glared at me,” she wrote.

“And then a flight attendant took my baby and gave me a pair of yoga pants from her carry-on and wrote her address on a napkin so I could mail them back.”

She added: “I firmly believe that she will go to heaven no matter what she may do in the rest of her life.”

Thousands liked her post and quickly began sharing their own sweet stories.

One person replied: “Oh God, I can’t even tell this story and not cry.

“I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when bookstores were still a thing. One night, a caller says he thinks he might be gay and is considering self-harm. We’re not a crisis centre! But as long as we’re talking, he’s safe, right?

“So I talk to this guy and I answer questions and I try to be encouraging and I’m maybe sounding a little frantic and I’m definitely ignoring the 4-5 customers in the store, and this angel of a woman puts her hand on my shoulder and asks for the phone.

“‘My turn,’ she says.

“And SHE, this 50-something lesbian talks to this stranger on the phone. And a LINE FORMS BEHIND HER. Every customer in that store knows that call, knows that feeling, and every person takes a turn talking to that man.”

Another person admitted: “Had one day to start IVF with no warning due to aggressive cancer diagnosis.

“Private cost $10,000, Doc made a call to public hospital, got in same day.

“Nurses all stayed late to get my treatment underway. Cost: basically free. Got two eggs and 3.5 years later had my baby daughter.”

And it didn’t stop there.

Someone else said: “I fainted on the subway once and a kind, elderly Chinese woman who spoke no English waited with me, held my hand and fed me grapes while we waited for the EMTs.

“When they finally came, she patted my hand three times and put my hand on her heart before leaving.”

A woman named Jennifer added: “One time I was finishing a reading before class and was sitting on a bench outside.

“A stranger tapped my shoulder and said ‘I’m sorry, but the way the light was shining on you, you looked like an angel.’

“I think about her every day.”
