A man was flying unaccompanied after visiting his sister, and he was blind and deaf. None of the flight attendants knew how to communicate with him. He could feel sign language and feel objects to know what they were. So a 15 year old girl, who was also on the flight came over to assist. She taught herself sign language because she is dyslexic and that was the easiest language for her to learn. She attended to him and helped the flight attendants understand his needs for the duration of the flight. She made sure everything he needed was communicated clearly and he was very well taken care of.
