Traveling with a child is certainly one of the things most people dread the most when it comes to traveling over long distances. One young mother from Korea anticipated her baby would get fussy on their 10 hour flight from Seoul, Korea to San Francisco, USA.
So she decided to go an extra mile to ensure the other passengers would be a little more comfortable n case her child started to act up. As they were boarding, Dave, who was in the same plane noticed the young mom and her baby. What he did not expect to see was a goodie bag waiting for him on his seat when he got there.
Inside the goodie bag was a pair of ear plugs, an assortment of Korean candies and a note that would melt the coldest of hearts!
The note read, “Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m 4 months old. Today I’m going to the U.S. with my mom and grandma to see my aunt. I’m a little bit nervous and scary because it’s my first flight in my life, which means that I may cry or make too much noise. I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises. Please excuse me. So my mom prepared little goodie bags for you! It has some candies and earplugs. Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me. Enjoy your trip. Thank you. :)”
As it turned out, Dave was actually a cameraman working for KGO-TV in San Francisco. He took pictures of the goodie bag, the note, and the young mom carrying her child and shared the story online where it quickly went viral with people all over the world praising this mom’s thoughtfulness and actions.
People also wondered if the passengers were able to use the earplugs. Turns out the earplugs weren’t even needed: the baby was very peaceful and slept soundly through the entire flight!
Divers Spot The World’s Largest Ever Recorded Great White Shark Feasting On Whale
For most of us, spotting an unusually humongous white shark while out in the sea, would have us running for dear life, but when a team of divers spotted the largest great white shark on the planet they made sure to grab their cameras as quickly as they could before they jumped into the sea, and boy are we glad they did!
A couple of divers who were out at sea saw the shark, nicknamed ‘Deep Blue’ and they were determined to take a closer look as the shark fed on a dead sperm whale, around nine miles from the coast off the Hawaiian island of Oahu.
The enormous predator named Deep Blue is up to 50 years old, weights 2.5 tons and measures 20ft long!
Incredible pictures shot by the divers show them swimming side by side with the amazingly huge shark.
On an Instagram post, Oliphant wrote, “Face to face with the worlds largest great white ever recorded ‘Deep Blue’ with @oceanramsey. I’m still in shock that we spent almost the whole day with this amazing animal in my backyard.
I hope my conservation images like this help people to question their perceptions and realize the beauty, and importance of sharks and I hope that they inspire the kind of compassion and connection we need to have with nature and sharks, to help protect them and coexist alongside them.
Kimberly Jeffries, another of the divers, wrote, “If you asked me a few days ago what the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in Hawaiian waters the answer probably would be pretty different. If you asked me yesterday the answer would be free-diving with Deep Blue, a great white, the largest ever documented, who was last seen in 2013 in Mexico.
If you asked me right now, it would be free-diving with, interacting with and photographing not one but multiple, different great whites AND Deep Blue.”
Deep Blue was last spotted in Mexico in 2013 where it was fitted with a tracker which is how divers were able to identify it this time.
