Woman captures moment flight attendant consoles passenger during turbulence
RALEIGH, N.C. (KAKE) - A flight attendant is being recognized for his humanity and kindness aboard a recent delta airlines flight.
Molly Simonson Lee was a passenger on a Delta flight from Charlotte to New York when another passenger made it clear she was not comfortable, WTVD reports. The woman began crying.
A flight attendant overheard the passenger and went to comfort her, helping her overcome her anxiety.
"He just was so reassuring, so calming and said, 'you know what? I got you,'" Lee said. "'I'm gonna be there for you, just anything you need to let me know.' And he was so wonderful and reassuring. With every little noise, she'd be like, 'what's that?' He's like, 'that's okay. That's just the jet bridge pulling away' or whatever the case may be. And that really helped her."
Lee said the flight attendant, Floyd Dean-Shannon, sat next to the woman for nearly 10 minutes holding her hand and reassuring her. Lee captured the moment in a photo and posted it to Facebook. It has since been shared more than 11,000 times.
