Southwest Airline Flight Attendant Helps Out Parents In Huge Way

A photo of a Southwest Airlines flight attendant holding a passenger's baby is going viral.

Heather and Danny Gooch were taking their 9-month-old son Aiden back home to Long Island from Ft. Lauderdale when he became quite fussy — as babies do. It was his second time on an airplane, but the first time he was awake for the trip.

Just as they started to panic, a flight attendant, identified as Anissa Charles, took Aiden and began walking him up and down the aisle until he was calm again.

Heather told WCBS, "I realize, it's something so small, but it meant so much to me."

And Danny added, "It was a moment of peace. We had time to enjoy our lunch. Have a little quiet time, and we enjoyed watching him go up and down the aisle, saying hi to everybody."

The parents posted a message on Facebook praising Charles and others joined in. And she even responded!

Charles commented, "Y'all are going to make me cry!!! Lol it was Truly my pleasure and he made MY day!! I needed him more than he wanted me to hang out with!"

Dear Southwest, I'm hoping you can share this post so that I can be sure that it finds its way to a very special...
