Passengers sing Baby Shark to comfort crying boy on six-hour flight

This is the heartwarming moment passengers on a plane sang Baby Shark to comfort a crying boy. 

The young child had become very upset on a flight from , in the United Arab Emirates, to the Albanian city of Tirana last week.

Rather than simply sitting in silence for the six-hour flight, other people on the plane decided to try their best to cheer him up, breaking into a rendition of the famous children’s song.

A video of the sight, taken by Dubai-based radio host Parikshit Balochi and posted on his TikTok on Thursday, March 10, has now been viewed more than 7 million times.

In the footage passengers on the FlyDubai flight can be seen smiling as they clap and sing the song.

The camera pans to the upset boy, who is being held in the arms of a man, and seems to be calmed slightly by the tune as he watches them sing.

Mr Balochi said that the child was sitting next to him and had been ‘crying nonstop’.
