This Flight Attendant Touched The Hearts Of Millions With A Single Kind Gesture.
It's simple, random acts of kindness that help us reaffirm our faith in humanity during troubled times like these, and this act of kindness is one of them.
On December 8, flight attendant Fan Xuesong was working a flight from Zhengzhou to Hainan, China. In the bulkhead aisle was Mr. Niu, a 71-year-old Chinese man who had recently suffered a stroke. With his mobility and dexterity limited, Mr. Niu was unable to eat.
That's when Fan decided to step in. What she did to help a stranger in need will bring tears to your eyes.
"When I started to feed him dinner, the old man suddenly began to cry," Fan said in an interview after the photos went viral.
The photos of the touching moment were taken by nearby passengers, who were also moved to tears.
Two years ago, Mr. Niu, a former professor of medicine, had a serious stroke, leaving him partially paralyzed. His wife is his main carer, but on this flight, they were unable to sit together. That's when Fan stepped in and brought the old man to tears with her gesture. Fan comforted him when his tears began to flow.
The process of feeding Mr. Niu wasn't an easy one, as his stroke has also made it difficult for him to chew and swallow. However, he was put at ease by Fan's patience and kindness, and this moment has left us all feeling inspired to be just a little bit more selfless, every day.
