Sheila Fedrick has been a flight stewardess for 10 years, she has seen and done it all in her profession. However, all her years of flying couldn’t have prepared her for what she discovered when she saw an unusual pair of travelers riding in her plane.
Ms. Fedrick noticed a well-dressed older gentleman traveling with an unkempt and messy 14-15-year-old girl. The flight attendant felt something was off.
“Something in the back of my mind said something is not right,” Fedrick said in a video interview with WTSP.
“He was well-dressed, that’s what kind of got me because why is he well dressed and she is looking disheveled and out of sorts?”
Whenever Fedrick would ask the young girl a question, her companion would respond in her stead. He wouldn’t allow the girl to talk to the stewardess.
Something was definitely wrong in that picture. Fredrick then whispered to the young girl to excuse herself and go to the restroom. The stewardess then left a note in the restroom. The teenager’s response was alarming.
“She wrote on the note that she needed help,” Fredrick said in the same interview.
Fedrick told the pilot of the situation. When the plane had landed, police were waiting to apprehend the well-dressed man.
It was revealed that Fredrick saved a victim of human trafficking! The kidnapped girl was to be sold off as a prostitute or worse still, as a slave.
She gave the teenager her phone number. The grateful teen called her guardian angel in disguise a few weeks after the incident.
Fredrick thought it was a good opportunity to share her story, now that other flight attendant is being trained to spot the signs of human trafficking.
"I've been a flight attendant for 10 years and it's like I am going all the way back to when I was in training and I was like, I could have seen these young girls and young boys and didn't even know." she said.
Thank God for people like you Sheila.
