Kerry Drake was on his way to Lubbock to say goodbye to his mother from San Francisco to Lubbock, when his connecting flight to Houston was delayed and almost caused him to miss the last flight of the night to Lubbock. With the seconds ticking away, you will not believe what happened next!

Airlines are competitive and with Spring Break here and the spring travels increasing, they are on their A-game to get flights up and gone exactly on time. In most cases we all welcome this fact, but it was a dreadful realization for Kerry when his connecting flight was delayed and he almost didn’t make it home in time to say goodbye.

In the video, Kerry thanks the United Airlines for their compassion in an interview with CNN. You don’t hear a story like this often and it’s an amazing you will want to share with everyone.

To Kerry: Blake is so sorry for your lose. Give your dad a hug for us! Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family.
