Why This Airline Employee Interrupted a Flight Will Leave You In Tears

This Southwest Airlines employee interrupted the flight to serenade the grieving mother of a fallen trooper.

On a flight to Louisville, Kentucky, flight attendant Scott Wirt serenaded Debbie Edenhofer with his rendition of "You Raise Me Up." Debbie lost her son, Arizona Trooper Tyler Edenhofer, when he was shot and killed in the line of duty in July 2018.

After the clip went viral, Wirt told the Daily Mail, "It's a passion of mine to be able to give back to our customers in the way I know how and that's by singing. This particular story touched my heart and I couldn't think of a better way to honor their son's legacy by singing such a wonderful song.

We never know why someone is traveling but when we do we want to be there for them. Southwest gives me the freedom to be myself and celebrate with our customers or be a shoulder to cry on in times of need."
