One flight attendant went above and beyond the call of duty to help out a tired mom.

On a late-night Hawaiian Airlines flight, crew member Gina Reyes was caught on video assisting a mother of three by calming the woman’s toddler so she could have a rare chance to relax.

"I saw a place where I could help," Reyes told Fox affiliate KHON2 in Honolulu. "I was rocking and singing to him. I was singing lullabies to him."

Apparently, the boy was crying for about half an hour when Reyes stepped in. He looks perfectly cozy draped over Reyes’ shoulder in the video. Late-night flights can be so stressful, pretty much anyone would want to be lovingly rocked to sleep.

The video was captured by fellow passenger Rachel Yuen Nihi, who told KHON2, “I watched that mom just literally lean back in her chair and breathe.”

Reyes has four children herself, according to KHON2, so it’s safe to say she’s pretty adept at jumping in when a child (or a fellow mom) needs help.

Not to mention, her quick thinking probably soothed many other passengers on the flight as well.
