An attendant on a Philippine Airlines flight came to a passenger’s rescue when her baby grew hungry.


What can be more heartbreaking than hearing a hungry baby's cry?

Filipino stewardess Patrisha Organo was working on a domestic flight when she heard the distinctive wail of a hungry infant, reported Inquirer.net, on November 8, 2018.

Organo spoke to the mother and advised her to feed the child, only to discover that she had run out of baby formula.

“I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child. Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant. I felt a pinch in my heart. There’s no formula milk onboard.”

Patrisha Organo, Inquirer.net, November 8, 2018.


Organo explained to the passenger that the plane carried no formula on board, but as the baby continued crying, she came to a decision.

Organo, 24, is the mother of an 8-month old baby girl which she is breastfeeding, and she offered to feed the hungry infant,


The baby's mother accepted Organa's offer, and the two women took the baby to the attendant's area, out of sight of the other passengers where she could feed the child in privacy.



As soon as Organa put the baby to her breast it started feeding hungrily, much to the mother's relief.

Organa fed the baby until she fell asleep, then took the mother and child back to their seat. For the attendant, her compassionate gesture was a natural extension of her duty to care for her passengers, no matter how small they might be.

For those who dream of flying and traveling the world, a flight attendants job may seem to be a dream come true.

But being a flight attendant isn't just glamourous travel and wearing an elegant uniform, their primary function is to help ensure the safety, and comfort of passengers on airline flights.

Flight attendants instruct passengers on safety procedures, and in case of a potential accident, they are responsible for guiding the passengers off the plane safely, and in an orderly manner.



Flight attendants are also required to perform first aid if the need arises, and some have even had to deliver babies, and handle serious medical emergencies.

Some like, Patrisha Organo, go beyond the call of duty in order to fulfill their obligations to their passengers.
