A mum has thanked the kind stranger who helped when her baby had a tantrum as they stood in a long queue to go through customs.

Katy Montgomery Vassaur, partner Jace and their daughter Marley, one, were flying home to Glenpool, Oklahoma after a holiday earlier this month.

They had been on one flight but had to go through customs to get their last flight home.

Katy said the line was incredibly long and after a long day of travelling, Marely was restless.

But with the help of the woman in the queue named Ashifa, they were able to calm her down.

The woman held the baby right until the other side of customs to give her parents a break.

Katy posted on Facebook thanking the woman for the random act of kindness.

Calling her a ‘real life angel’ Katy said: ‘The line was OUTRAGEOUS .. like, hundreds more people than I had EVER seen waiting at customs before .. at this point Marley was DONE and proceeded to have a total and complete meltdown.

‘Jace and I are doing everything we can think of to soothe her.. passing her back and forth .. people are starting to stare and get agitated and she is just SCREAMING at the top of her lungs and there was nothing we could do. To say it was awful would be a huge understatement.

‘THEN, we pass by this beautiful young woman named Ashifa.. we had obviously never seen her before and as we go by she starts kind of talking to Marley.. well, to everyone’s surprise Marley stops crying and reaches out for her! This wonderful lady held Marley ALL THE WAY through the customs line and Marley was just as happy and content as she could be in her arms the entire time.

‘Ashifa — you have something truly special and I honestly do not know what we would have done without you yesterday. What you did was completely selfless and truly an act of kindness. THANK YOU SO MUCH for loving on our Marley Jo and giving this mom & dad (and everyone else in line) a much-needed break. The world needs more Ashifas.’

The post received over 20,000 shares and over 81,000 with people commending the woman for what she did.

One said: ‘We need more people like her. She is beautiful on the inside and out.’
