Mum has been reduced to tears when a foreigner renounces a first-class plane seat for her and her 11-month-old sick daughter – The Sun


An act of kindness RANDOM left a mother and the rest of the world in tears.

Kelsey Rae Zwick traveled from Orlando to Philadelphia with her 11-month-old daughter, Lucy, for treatment at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia, when a complete stranger made a moving gesture.

In a Facebook post, Kelsey said that she and little Lucy, who suffers from chronic lung disease, have boarded American Airlines flight 588.

A stewardess approached them and informed them that a first-class passenger wanted to change places.

Kelsey was incredibly moved by the sweet gesture and wrote: "In the 2D man, you were traveling from Orlando to Philadelphia today.

"I do not know you, but I guess you saw us somewhere." I was pushing a stroller, I had a diaper bag on my arm, and I also dragged an oxygen machine for my daughter.

The flight attendant came up and told me that you were waiting to change places. You were leaving your comfortable first-class place for us. Failing to hold back my tears, I screamed as I climbed my daughter, while my daughter Lucy laughed.

"We had a smile on our faces as we headed to see his" friends "at the CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia).

"We had pre-boarded the plane, squatted in our window seat and made jokes to those around us about having to sit next to my screaming but happy child.

"The flight attendant approached me and told me you were waiting to change places, you were leaving your comfortable first-class seat for us."

The moving gesture, which Kelsey said "I do not see the time to tell Lucy one day", led her to cry.

He said: "I can not hold back my tears, I cried on my lane while my daughter Lucy laughed!"

Unable to thank the Good Samaritan as they exchanged each other in the hallway, Kelsey shared the story on Facebook in hopes of finding the man.
