"I Breastfed A Stranger's Baby In-Flight," Says Flight Attendant Who Went Beyond Her Line Of Duty
In a heartfelt act of motherhood and sheer kindness, a Philippine Airlines flight attendant went beyond her line of duty and came to the rescue of a passenger when she offered to breastfeed the woman’s crying baby.
Breastfed a wailing infant
The incident, which prompted the flight attendant to be termed as a ‘hero’ took place during a flight on November 6. 24-year-old Patrisha Organo was on a domestic flight when she heard a wailing baby. Reportedly, She approached the infant’s mother and suggested that she should feed the baby. When Organo learnt that the mother had run out of formula milk, Organo knew that there was none on board.

The line administrator led the baby’s mother to the gallery where Organo breastfed the baby. She wrote on Facebook, “The baby started rooting, she was so hungry. I saw the relief on her mother’s eyes. I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep. I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me.”
Mother to a nine-month-old herself, Organo’s mommy instincts kicked in. She offered to breastfeed the crying baby herself. Organo was on “check flight,” which would qualify her as a cabin crew evaluator.
Narrating the incident on her Facebook profile, Organo wrote, “I thought that this flight’s gonna be so special as this is a big step on my flying career.” It was special indeed, as she not only bagged the promotion but also won the hearts of thousands across the world. She has reportedly been working for the airlines as a flight attendant for four years now.
While the mother thanked her, Organo’s gesture has earned the heart of a lot of people on the internet. With over 27,000 shares on her Facebook post, women are showing support for Organo.
