Some jobs allow us the chance to meet and interact with different people each day. We can become experts at human behavior and people watching. Shelia Fedrick is a seasoned flight attendant. She’s met people from all walks of life. On this one particular day, there wasn’t anything unusual about it. She was scheduled to work on an Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to San Francisco.
She observed two passengers board the plane together. A disheveled teenaged girl with greasy hair accompanied a much older, clean-cut, well-dressed man. This struck Shelia as odd because the pair stuck out among the other passengers. Why would these two be flying together?
The man appeared to be very controlling of the young girl. When Shelia would ask her what she’d like to drink, he’d respond quickly to her, not giving the girl the opportunity to speak for herself. Shelia followed her gut and the instincts that shouted at her that something was very wrong.
She managed to whisper to the girl to head to the bathroom at the rear of the plane. There, Shelia left her a note. In it, she asked if everything was all right. The girl saw it and wrote on the back. Her words sent chills down the woman’s spine: “I need help.”
Shelia didn’t waste time alerting the pilot to the situation. The police would be waiting for the plane when it landed. This experienced professional listened to her gut. She saved the girl’s life. Once authorities began investigating the man and his young companion, a horrible truth emerged. One that will make you think twice about ignoring your instincts. Watch the video. It will reiterate the importance of paying attention to those around you.
