While most people often crush and burn at work, a kind flight attendant aced his job and went beyond his call of duty.
American mum Ashley Dowell was travelling with her three kids when her nine-month-old baby started getting fussy and irritable.

She was of course worried about getting peering stares and unforgiving smirks from passengers who were bothered by the noise.
According to Good Morning America, while the mum was fumbling and attempting to calm her baby down, a kind flight attendant came to her rescue.
“We were feeling like we were those people on the plane with the baby who keeps crying and everyone wants to kick you off the plane,” she said.
She and her husband tried everything within their power to get their kid to settle down but the little one would not budge.
Fifteen minutes later, their guardian angel showed up and picked their little Alayna.
The kind man smiled as he rocked the little baby and let the parents settle and have a moment of sanity.
In a short while, Alayna calmed down and stopped crying as she rested in the arms of the kind flight attendant.
He rubbed the baby’s back and walked along the aisle with her before handing back Alayna to her parents.
“We were in such a small, confined area, we were really desperate,” Ashley added.
