Shelia Fedrick, a flight attendant, rescued a girl from a human trafficking ring after she saw the teenager sitting on a plane and left a note for her in the restroom.
Fedrick, 49, was working on an Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to San Francisco when she saw a teen, about 14 or 15 years old, sitting in the window seat next to an older man
Fedrick said the victim looked like she “had been through pure hell” and it was the contrast between the teen and the older man that made Fedrick suspicious.
“Something in the back of my mind said something is not right,” Frederick said.
Frederick said the girl wouldn’t look at her or respond to questions, the man she was flying with answered everything.
“He was well dressed, that’s what kind of got me because why is he well dressed and she is looking disheveled and out of sorts,” Frederick said.
Frederick was able to tell the girl under her breath to go to the bathroom. The veteran flight attendant put a note on the mirror for her.
After receiving word from the teenager, Frederick notified the pilot, who then alerted police.
