The moment a flight attendant’s magic touch soothed to sleep an incessantly crying toddler has gone viral.

The Hawaiin Airlines flight attendant offered her help after a mother of three had struggled to calm her 3-year-old son for over half an hour on a late-night flight.

A short video of the moment was shared to social media by Rachel Yuen, another passenger on the flight from Honolulu to Los Angeles on Monday, Feb. 12.

“A single mom of three was doing her best to calm her youngest one down,” wrote Yuen in her post. “Her oldest couldn’t have been more than 5 years old. I watched her turn into an acrobat, trying to soothe her crying toddler, tossing and turning. ”
