When Shelia Fredrick noticed the 14-15-year-old girl with greasy blonde hair sitting near an older well-dressed man on a flight from Seattle to San Francisco, she knew something was wrong with these two.
And she was right!
“I left a note in one of the bathrooms. She wrote back on the note and said ‘I need help’“ said Shelia.
So the flight attendant immediately went to the pilot and reported him the situation. From there, the police were called. They were waiting until plane landed and arrested the man.
All the flight attendants went through the training from the Airline Ambassadors, so they are trained to spot traffickers, who are reported to authorities later.
Thanks to this training, only during the last year, 2,000 human traffickers
were arrested and 400 victims were identified.
