Philippines Airline flight attendant breastfed stranger's hungry baby mid-flight

A flight attendant went above and beyond to help a mom who ran out of formula for her infant Tuesday during a domestic Philippine Airlines flight.

The PAL flight attendant noted the baby's sob was "a cry that will make you want to do anything to help".

Organo, a new mother, switched gears from flight attendant into mom mode when she heard a crying baby mid-flight.

Organo said she walked down the aisle to the crying baby and asked the mom if she needed assistance.

The flight attendant said she approached the mother holding the baby and asked her if everything was OK. "There's no formula milk onboard", she added. An advocate of breastfeeding, she offered her own milk to nourish the baby and lessen the worries of the infant's upset mother.

In spite of her scheduled "check flight" that day, Organo's motherly instinct prevailed. The mother was thrilled by the idea as well.

The stewardess, herself the mother of a nine-month-old girl called Jade, said she knew the trauma the mother would have been going through. "The baby started rooting, she was so hungry", she wrote on Facebook.

Tearfully, the mother told Organo her baby was hungry but she'd run out of formula.

'As a mother myself I knew the stress she would've been going through, ' Patrisha said.

Trump has repeatedly called him "fake news", turning him into a symbol of the president's general animus toward the news media. It all started when CNN's Acosta got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan.

"I saw the relief on [sic] her mother's eyes", she said.

'She had been at the airport since the night before so had ran out of milk during the actual flight, which is what caused the baby to cry.

"There are angels on the earth too", another wrote.

'The mother of the child was so thankful for me helping, as she had been at the airport since 9.00pm the previous night.

And as a sweet end to her sweet gesture, Yahoo Lifestyle reported that Organo was promoted to Cabin Crew Evaluator on the flight.

Alexandra Deabler is a Lifestyle writer and editor for Fox News. "I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me".

"I was right, the flight's gonna be special, so special not only because I got qualified as an Evaluator but I got to help", she wrote.

As of this posting, Organo's Facebook entry has garnered over 91,000 reactions, 17, 629 shares, and over 3,500 comments.
