Have you been seated between two screaming children on a flight across the country? It’s something out of a nightmare. I’m one of those people that will do anything to avoid children on a flight.
Todd Walker is the complete opposite. Walker was recently on an American Airlines flight with Jessica Rudeen and her two children, a 4-month-old baby and 3-year-old toddler. Like any other flight, Rudeen’s children started crying immediately but luckily Walker was seated nearby and stepped-up to the plate to help calm the children down.
“Once I asked her to sit down, she started to get nervous and scared and it turned into a full meltdown. I tried everything I could to convince her to sit. She was having none of it and started screaming, “I don’t want to go, I want to get off the plane,” Rudeen said.
“I honestly had no idea what was going on. Then I see this mom coming around the corner, and she has these giant eyes that are just filled with fear. Her kids are tired and angry and stressed,” Walker told Insider.
