A 15-year-old girl is being praised for her act of kindness during a cross-country flight, CNN reports.
Clara Daly was traveling with her mother on an Alaska Airline flight from Boston to Los Angeles last week. During the six-hour flight, an attendant asked on the plane's speaker whether anyone knew sign language.
The teenager, who has been studying American Sign Language communication techniques, pressed the call button and volunteered her skills to help a blind and deaf man. She formed letters with her fingers so he could "read" them with his hands.
The flight attendants needed someone who could communicate with Tim Cook. Clara used fingerspelling to help Cook throughout the flight.
"I went to [Cook] a total of three times, once to get him water, another to tell him the time, and the last hour of the flight to just talk to him," Clara said.
A passenger took a photo of one of the moments Clara was communicating with Cook and shared it on Facebook, where it has been shared nearly 500,000 times.
"There are still good, good people who are willing to look out for each other," she wrote.
