A devoted father from Ohio went viral this week for going through great measures to spend Christmas Eve with his daughter.

Hal Vaughan, the father of flight attendant Pierce Vaughan, took a total of six flights, to make sure his daughter didn’t have to spend her Christmas Eve working, without her family.

The sweet gesture was first brought to everyone’s attention when a passenger seated next to Hal on a flight, Mike Levy, shared Hal’s story on Facebook.

Monday, Mike Levy made a post on Facebook, praising Hal’s heartwarming gesture. Mike also wished the father and daughter a Merry Christmas.

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Hal on my flight back home. His daughter Pierce was our flight attendant who had to work over Christmas ☹️. Hal decided he would spend the holiday with her.

Mike included pictures of Hal and Pierce Vaughan to his Facebook post.
