A stewardess came in to help a stranger's crying baby after she ran out of milk during a flight.
Patrisha Organo, 24, was working on a morning domestic flight in the Philippines when she heard the baby's hysterical sobs and decided to take action.
She approached the mother, who was out of milk, and kindly offered to nurse the child in another part of the cabin herself.
Patrisha has a nine-month-old baby named Jade and said she knows the mother's problems.
She said, "As soon as I heard the child's cry, I knew there had to be something I could do to help.
"When the mother told me that she had no milk for the child and I knew that none was on board, I knew that I had to help.
"I knew that I could offer my own milk, since I had breastfed my little child myself, so offered my services.
Patrisha said the child's mother was "grateful" for her help since she had been at the airport since the night before, so she runs out of milk for her baby.
As soon as the baby began to root, Patrisha said she said the "relief" in the mother's eyes when the baby finally fell asleep.
She added, "I can only imagine the chaos of these feelings, but as a mother I knew the stress she was going through.
"The helplessness that you feel when you can not feed your hungry child is terrible, so I had to intervene.
"Once I was able to help the baby and mother, I felt so happy – I can not put into words how fulfilled I felt."
Before leaving the plane, the grateful mother once again thanked Patrisha for all her help.
"I knew that the flight would be special for me as I had just received a promotion in my role, but I did not know it would be that special.
"I've nursed a strange baby in flight, and I'm just grateful for the gift of breastmilk in times of need."
