Flight Attendant Goes Viral Sitting With Frightened Passenger: “He explained every sound and bump”

Recently, a flight attendant went viral because of the extreme effort he went to in order to comfort a distressed passenger.

Viral Photo Shows Flight Attendant Comforting a Passenger

Flight attendant, 44-year-old Floyd Dean-Shannon, is clearly compassionate—and the photo of him sitting on the floor, holding the hand of a distressed passenger tells it all.

The flight attendant had only been working for Delta in this role for a few months when, on a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to New York City, he noticed one of his passengers looked extremely anxious.

Recalling that day, he told Good Morning America in an interview that “It kind of dawned on me…she had a look like, ‘I don’t want to be here.'”

He explained to GMA that he could tell she was nervous, and he decided to do something about it.

And what this flight attendant did to help the nervous passenger went viral for a reason.

Another passenger on the flight, Molly Simonson Lee, was so moved by the flight attendant’s care for the passenger that she took a photo.

After Molly Simonson Lee posted a photo of the flight attendant helping this passenger, it was picked up by all sorts of social media users. Check out this post by A Fly Guy’s Cabin Crew Lounge:

Molly Simonson Lee, confirming that the female passenger “was very nervous and even before the plane took off, she was visibly shaken by each sound.”

But when Dean-Shannon noticed this, he didn’t just say a few words to her. He actually sat in the aisle for the entire flight to help her get through it.

As Simonson Lee said, Dean-Shannon “explained every sound and bump” to the scared passenger to make it clear that she would be okay.

Later, after the photo of the flight attendant went viral, Good Morning America asked Dean-Shannon what exactly happened.
