Traveling can be difficult, but imagine how much more difficult if you were deaf and blind. You can’t hear the announcements about when to board. You can’t see the signs directing you to your gate, or any updates on the computer monitors saying the gate has changed. Which is what makes this an incredibly heartwarming story.
Tim was a 64-year-old blind and deaf man who was traveling alone. The flight attendants had a hard time communicating with Tim. They were trying their best but they weren’t having much success. Amazingly, 15-year-old Clara happened to be on the same flight. She was traveling back from Alaska with her mother. Clara took notice of the whole situation and felt like she had to help the helpless man.
After the attendants made an announcement about passengers knowing American sign language, the teen immediately knew she was there at the right time. She is pretty fluent in American sign language because of her dyslexia. So, she stood up and squatted in front of the man and helped him converse.
Thankfully, the two were able to have a conversation, and one of the flight passengers even filmed a video of this heartwarming moment. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
