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.”

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.
