Stranger's act of kindness for mom, 2 kids on plane goes viral

An Arkansas mom's story of how a stranger helped her and her two young children on a flight is warming hearts across the country.

According to ABC News, Jessica Rudeen, 34, of Bentonville, ran into some trouble while traveling from Missouri to North Carolina with her 4-month-old son, Alexander, and 3-year-old daughter, Caroline.

"My first flights with an infant and a toddler started out with a little panic when we boarded the plane," Rudeen wrote in a Facebook post. "My 4-month-old was screaming his head off because, due to a series of unexpected events, I was unable to nurse him before boarding the plane. My 3-year-old, who was excited before boarding the plane, lost her nerve and began screaming and kicking, 'I want to get off the plane! I don’t want to go!' I honestly thought we’d get kicked off the plane. So with two kids losing their minds, I was desperately trying to calm the situation."

Luckily, another passenger, Todd Walker, 52, was happy to help, ABC News reported.

"This man reached for the baby and held him while I forced a seatbelt on Caroline, got her tablet and started her movie," Rudeen wrote. "Once she was settled and relatively calmed, he distracted her so that I could feed Alexander. Finally, while we were taxiing, the back of the plane no longer had screams."

But Walker's kindness didn't end there. Rudeen said he also talked to Caroline during the flight and even colored and watched a movie with her. 

"By the end of the flight, he was Caroline's best friend," Rudeen wrote. "I'm not sure if he caught the kiss she landed on his shoulder while they were looking out the window."

In another stroke of luck, the new friends discovered that they were connecting in Charlotte to the same flight to Wilmington.

"He helped us get off the plane and led us to the next gate with Caroline in hand," Rudeen wrote. "If that wasn’t enough, he changed his seat on the next flight to sit in our row to help us. This guy, Todd, showed me kindness and compassion that I’ve never known from another person. His wife, he said, had a similar experience when their two boys were young and a stranger showed her the same kindness. I am blown away by God’s hand in this because we could have been placed next to anyone, but we were seated next to one of the nicest men I have ever met in my life."

Rudeen's Facebook post thanking Walker quickly went viral, with more than 28,000 likes and 7,000 shares. Although Rudeen did not have Walker's last name, social media users helped her get in touch with his wife, Stacey who said helping people is in her husband's nature.

Rudeen said she hopes that the families can get together soon.

According to WXIN-TV, Tiffany Griffin said an employee at the Kiddiegarden day care in Indianapolis called her Monday to say her son, Jesse, had been hurt. When Griffin saw the boy's injuries, she punched the worker, who claimed that a 2-year-old girl had attacked Jesse.

Griffin said there's "no way" that the girl caused Jesse's injuries.

"She didn't look like she was the violent type, and her mom said she wasn't the violent type," Griffin told WXIN

The boy was being examined at a nearby hospital. No one has been arrested, but police are continuing to investigate the incident, WXIN reported.

Parents, doctor say girl allergic to water

Imagine being allergic to water. Not being able to bathe. Not being able to jump in the pool even on the hottest of days.

That’s exactly what little Ivy Angerman has to battle every day.

She’s almost 2 years old and is allergic to water, no matter hot or cold, bottled, faucet or distilled, when water gets on her, she breaks out with red, painful blisters, the television program “Inside Edition” reported.

“She can feel the reaction coming. She can feel the heat,” Brittany Angerman, Ivy’s mother, told “Inside Edition”. “She says, ‘Mommy, ouch, it’s hot, touch it.’”

Her doctor says Ivy suffered from aquagenic urticaria, a condition that affects fewer than 100 people in the U.S. Her baby sister is luckily not shown any signs of it.

She is so allergic that even her tears or sweat can irritate her skin, People magizine reported.

How does a family deal with simple things like bath time?

Ivy’s parents keep her inside as much as possible to keep her clean. When it’s time for a bath, she is bathed with wet wipes, “Inside Edition” reported.

Amazingly, Ivy is able to drink water without a problem and she’s been prescribed antihistamines to control the reactions. Doctors hope she will grow out of the allergy as she gets older, “Inside Edition” reported

Tennessee mom delivers own baby in Istanbul hotel room using YouTube, pocketknife, shoelaces

With resourcefulness that would put MacGyver to shame, a pregnant Tennessee woman used YouTube, an electric kettle, a pocketknife and shoelaces to deliver her own son in a foreign hotel room.

In a viral Twitter thread posted last week, Tia Freeman, 22, of La Vergne said she had already bought plane tickets to Germany for a March vacation before finding out she was six months pregnant. Thinking she had plenty of time before the baby's arrival, she decided to take the trip anyway. 

>> Read the thread here (WARNING: Viewer discretion advised.)

According to WTVF and Inside Edition, Freeman, a computer specialist for the U.S. Air Force, initially thought she had food poisoning when she started having cramps en route to Istanbul, where she had a layover, on March 7. The pain only got worse after she landed.

"I make it to my hotel & now I'm sure I'm in labor," she tweeted. "There is no way in the world I'm not in labor because I can barely standup at this point. So I'm in a foreign country, where no one speaks english, I don't know this country's emergency number, & I have no clue what to do."

So she looked it up online.

"In true millennial form I decided to @Youtube it," she tweeted. "If no one else had my back the internet would!"

Freeman said she got into the bathtub and pushed five or six times before delivering a baby boy, Xavier Ata Freeman. After another Google search, she used an electric tea kettle to sanitize her pocketknife and shoelaces, then cut the umbilical cord.

"It's weird how focused a person becomes when [their] adrenaline starts going," she tweeted. "Because at no point ever did I freak out. Like I just did what I had to do."

The morning after Xavier's birth, Freeman brought him to the airport.

"Immediately, security knew something was up," she told WTVF. "They called in a doctor and nurse, and I called the U.S. consulate."

Freeman and Xavier, who quickly became viral sensations in Turkey, flew back to the U.S. two weeks later after the newborn received a birth certificate and emergency passport, WTVF reported.

"I still really don’t understand what’s so shocking about my delivery story," Freeman tweeted. "Lol maybe it’ll set in one day.”

8-year-old boy dies at soccer practice

A family in West Virginia is mourning and looking to make a change at their local soccer fields after their 8-year-old son died suddenly at soccer practice.

The first practice of the soccer season had just finished Thursday when Caleb Ray told his dad he wasn’t feeling right, WSAZ reported.

“He told me, ‘Daddy I can’t see,” Ryan Ray. “He fell and started convulsing a little bit. I yelled over there to call an ambulance and everybody came running over and Kristy and I performed CPR on him until the ambulance arrived.”

Kristy Ray told WSAZ that Caleb didn’t have any signs of medical issues. He had a heart murmur as a baby and asthma, but nothing that would have caused a sudden death.

“You don’t think it’s going to happen to you,” Kristy told WSAZ. “You hear about it happening a million miles away to somebody else, in another state, you don’t know the situation. You never think it’s going to happen to your kids or even anyone you know.”

The Rays now want to make sure that children are given a physical before sports, but also to make sure that all sports fields have defibrillators available. One wasn’t at the fields last week.

They are also getting their daughter checked out before she hits the playing field again. 

“We don’t want her to do anything strenuous until we get a cardiac workup on her. We’re scared. We’re scared it’s going to happen again. The chances are probably slim, but if it’s any chance we don’t want to take it,” The Rays told WSAZ.

The family has been receiving donations after Caleb’s death, WSAZ reported. They will be using it to buy defibrillators for the teams in their area and they’re working with lawmakers to make sure that all games and practices have the lifesaving devices.
