A mother was left stunned after her son with down syndrome captured what she believes is his guardian angel after taking photos using her cell phone on a flight back home to Texas.
Kerri Lyles was on a flight to Euston with her seven-year-old son Aasher, who cannot speak, when the boy who recently became obsessed with taking pictures with his parents phones wanted to take some snaps out of the plane window.
When the mother got home and went through the images to delete some to free up space, she came across a picture what is believed to be his guardian angel and was stunned by what she saw.
Ms Liles wrote on her Facebook page: ‘Yesterday we were flying back to Houston from Washington and my 7 year old, who’s recently become obsessed with taking pictures with our cell phones, wanted to take some pictures out of the window after I had reached across him to take one myself.
Speaking to Chron.com, she added: ‘We’ve known for a long time that AAsher has a sixth sense about others’ needs. Whether it be a hug or a smile. He just seems to gravitate to strangers in need.
‘He will let us know when he sees something by pointing and flapping his arms like wings. So, we’ve known he can see angels that surround him.
‘I do believe that he captured his angel out the window that day to bring him comfort in a rather bumpy takeoff.’
