Kelsey Zwick was so appreciative of the Good Samaritan that she shared a lengthy Facebook post.

The post provides insight into the events on 2nd December and her gratitude towards the man.

Zwick detailed how she and her 11-month-old baby were on board a flight from Orlando to Philadelphia in the USA.

She recalled how she and her baby girl were in good spirits as they were on their way to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Suddenly the flight attendant approached her to inform her that a stranger was waiting for her to switch seats with him.

As the man was seated in the first class section, he realised Zwick and her baby would be much more comfortable there.

The motivation behind the man’s noble gesture was soon revealed.

Zwick had been struggling to push her baby stroller while carrying the nappy bag and oxygen machine as she boarded the flight.

Her baby, Lucy, requires the machine as she was diagnosed with chronic lung disease.

Zwick went on to add that she cried tears of joy as she accepted the man’s generous offer.

She therefore drafted the lengthy post to reach out to the man and convey her gratitude once again.

Inside Edition reported that the man was traced and identified as Jason Kunselman.

Zwick subsequently told Yahoo! News that Kunselman and his spouse got teary-eyed when they read Zwick’s touching post.

Briefly.co.za was impressed and amazed as the post has been liked more than 700 000 times.
