Rochel Groner comforts young boy with autism during international flight.

*Bentzion Groner must be so proud of his wife right now. But then again, this is not the first time he has witnessed her acts of compassion.

Groner and his wife, Rochel, had already endured a three-hour delay on their flight from Belgium to Newark, New Jersey.

As you can imagine, everyone on board was understandably uncomfortable. This was especially true for a young boy with autism who, hours into the flight, had a very sad meltdown.

Groner wrote about the incident on a blog.

“About an hour into the eight-hour flight, one of the young passengers, a little boy with autism, started to have a meltdown. His cries were heard throughout the plane, and you could feel the tension among the other passengers.”
