Jessica Rudeen had never flown before and soon discovered that the ordeal would soon prove to be a nightmare, particularly since she was travelling with her toddler, Caroline and a four-month-old baby.

She had planned on feeding her youngest before boarding the plane but had not been able to, and as soon as she boarded the aircraft the baby threw a fit which led to her toddler joining in.

Briefly.co.za learned that soon after the situation descended into chaos until a stranger intervened. The man offered to take the screaming toddler while she attended to her screaming baby according to goodthingsguy.com.

Jessica was grateful for Todd's help but it also turned out that they were heading in the same direction so he helped them board their connecting flight and even managed to swap seats with another passenger so they could sit together.

She posted her story on social media hoping to track Todd down. Someone who knew Todd's wife put Jessica in contact with her. Apparently, someone had done the same for her and her husband was paying it forward.
