Babies and little children usually cry a lot, and when it happens in public, one doesn’t always have a solution at hand. Thankfully, there are indeed kindhearted people around, like this gentleman, who volunteered to comfort a mother’s young child, who was making a scene mid-flight.

Monica Nelson was traveling with her 20-month-old toddler, Luke, on a flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta. She also happened to be pregnant and was single-handedly trying to calm her child down, who was crying. The woman was anxious to keep her child quiet as to not annoy the other passengers on the flight, but nothing was working.

Suddenly, the man who was sitting next to her asked if she needed help with her child. The man introduced himself as Reid. Coincidentally, he also had a son named Luke. He reassured Nelson that he was a dad himself, and offered to walk with the child up and down the aisle.

Once Nelson agreed, Reid picked the child up gently and held him against his chest. For the remainder of the flight, Reid walked the child and held him to his chest as though he were his own, which helped calm the little boy down.

“It was such a relief because I was a little worried traveling with him without my husband there to help out,” said Nelson, who lives in Atlanta. “I’m still very grateful—he was so kind.”

“From the very beginning of the flight, the kind gentleman next to me kept Luke entertained and laughing the whole time,” Nelson explained, as reported by ABC News.

One of the other passengers on the flight, Angela Byrd, was so amazed at the gentleman’s selflessness that she took a few photos and shared the story on Facebook.

“It really tugged on my heart strings because my son had just lost his father,” Byrd told ABC News.

“I was in tears,” she wrote on her Facebook post. “…it showed me today that there are still good people out there in a world full of turmoil.”

    I also believe in kind people. When traveling with a 1 month year old, I met the kindest women! Once, Abi literally pooed so bad in her diaper that it deeper through her onesie. The lady next to me offered to watch my things in the waiting area so that I could clean Abi up in the restroom. I also had another woman offer to hold Abi while I searched for her bib in my diaper bag. She even gave me tips on parenting!

    People are always willing to be of assistance, there is still good in this world.
