Man At Air Show Takes Shoe Off For Sleeping Child


A man at the NAS Oceana Air Show in Virginia Beach, Virginia went with one shoe so a sleeping child nearby could use it as a pillow as he slept on the hard tarmac.

“My wife and I saw a man with one shoe on,” Alan Mosher told ABC News affiliate WVEC in Norfolk, Virgnia. “I thought that was a little strange.”

It was then that Mosher saw the sleeping child and knew what was happening. He was unable to speak with the man, whom he assumed was the boy’s father, and kept moving.

“To give up your own comfort and be on the tarmac with one shoe all that time is amazing,” Mosher told WVEC. “That’s one tired kid and a great dad.”
