Airline Ramp Agent Goes The Extra Mile To Unite Kid With His Toy

An airline ramp agent went “to infinity and beyond” to ensure that the Buzz Lightyear meets its superfan and owner. Buzz Lightyear toy was left behind by its owner and superfan in the flight. His mother shared the whole story and it has touched many hearts since. The mother shared how her two-year-old son left his favorite Buzz Lightyear toy in the plane.

His son Hagen Davis, from California, was devastated when he realized that on his flight to Dalla, Texas he had left his favorite toy behind. But luck was with Hagen as a kind-hearted employee at Dallas Love Field Airport picked his toy. The employee is a Ramp agent Jason Hamm and he was able to identify the owner of the toy.

He saw the name of the owner on the toy’s foot and matched it with the flight bookings. Though Jason was not responsible for it still he took it upon himself to ensure that the sweet boy got his toy back. Jason not only sent the boy his toy back but made it more exciting by putting a letter along with it telling how adventurous the journey Buzz had to get back to its owner. And this was not it.

The event took pictures of Buzz at many places such as in the cockpit, next to the plane engine, on the runway and at many places at the airport to support his adventurous journey. Hagen’s mother Ashley Davis, a 31-year-old, state worker from Elk Grove, Sacramento, CA shared the video of Hagen unboxing his toy and wrote: “He took amazing pictures. Pictures of Buzz in the cockpit, on the engine, on the sign.”

Further, she said: “It was just amazing to see somebody go out of their way. He had to pay to ship the box and pay for the pictures. For somebody to take that time for a stranger, it was awesome.”

She was seven months pregnant during that time and further shared: “He’d just turned two and plane rides with young kids can be stressful, so we bought his favorite toy. It was a very long, stressful flight, in addition to COVID protocols and having the masks and all of that. When we landed, I just couldn’t wait to get off the plane as I was having a rough time with the pregnancy.”

She added “I thought I had grabbed everything. I thought I had all of our belongings, so we made our way over to the rental car area. When we got there, we had realized we didn’t have Buzz. My son was in full-blown meltdown mode, after all the travelling he was devastated, but we had to go.” Though the couple once thought of the reclaim process it was expensive than the cost of the toy so they dropped the idea.

After a week of returning, they got an e-mail from Jason asking where he could send back the toy. On February 28, they received the package and Ashley was shocked to see decorations and all the efforts that Jason has put into it. She shared that her son was very happy and cuddles with his toy.
