When A Delayed Flight Is A Good Thing

An 11-year-old Israeli girl's trip to a New York camp for cancer patients was almost canceled when she couldn't locate her passport. Traveling with a group of campers, the cancer patient was about to board the plane when she could not find her passport. Ultimately, the camping program had to call the girl's mother to come pick up her daughter as she would be unable to attend the camp. As the plane departed and was taxing to the runway, another camper found the girl's passport in her bookbag. Flight attendants were notified and the plane returned to gate to pick up the girl. It resulted in a 45 minute delay, however fellow passengers cheered when the girl was able to board the plane. Read the entire story.
