Teenager uses sign language to communicate with blind, deaf man during flight

Teen’s display of kindness on an airline flight went viral on social media. Here’s what she did

A kind teen made an airline flight a little easier for a blind and deaf man flying alone.

Over the course of the six-hour flight from Boston to Portland, Daly checked in with Cook a few times to see how he was doing and if he needed anything from the flight attendants.

"They explained that the passenger was not only deaf, but also blind".

During the flight, flight attendants asked over the intercom if anyone knew sign language and that's when Daly stepped up to help.

"The man, who had given up his seat, did his best to assist with things like opening coffee creamer and pouring it in his coffee", Scribner said. She spent the flight tending to the man's needs and allowing him to feel each and every letter she signed in order to make sure they were communicating clearly while answering any questions he had.

She says she later received an email notification that her prescription was ready at another Walgreens across town. Arteaga said many women have reached out to her with similar stories. "I tried to explain to him".

"I observed a woman signing into a man's hand, so he could feel her words", said Lynette Scribner, another Alaska Airlines passenger.

Jane said she helped him ask for water and how much longer was left on the flight before eventually returning and spending the remainder of the flight until landing with him.

"After the flight, Clara told me she thought it was meant to be that our original flight was canceled and we were placed on this flight, so she could be there to help Tim", Jane said.

"She has an wonderful soul", said Jane. Daly said she has "always been fascinated by sign language". "He was just like lonely and wanted to talk", Clara told CBS Los Angeles.

"I was thinking wow this is really cool, I hope I don't spell anything wrong", she laughed. "English is already a hard language for me". But she overcame multiple barriers and helped the stranger communicate - something he probably couldn't have done without her there.

He's no Ronaldo in that regard. "He needs to wake up!" When things go well with Barcelona he's a terrific player. He's not concerned about the ball. "The team is lost", former Argentina worldwide Simeone can be heard saying.

Scribner said in a Facebook post that passengers onboard were all smiling and enjoying Cook having someone to talk to.

Her parents, Jane and Bill, say they could not be prouder of their daughter.

Cook boarded the flight alone and immediately the people around him started to take care of him. "She'll probably kill me for posting this, but - Proud of my girl", the happy mom wrote.

Scribner's post on Facebook has gone viral with more than 300,000 likes and 177,000 shares.
