Lisa Murray was flying between Dublin and Izmir, Turkey, with her 23-month-old daughter, Miley Rose Spillane, on Saturday when the frightening incident occurred.

As she attempted to perform the Heimlich maneuver, her fellow passengers were running out of their seats, screaming, she told Fox News.

Thankfully, Miley was able to cough up the obstruction. Murray called it the “fright of [her] life.”

The Aer Lingus crew then swooped in to calm the worried passengers after the scary scene.

“From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Aerlingus staff and customer service,” Murray wrote. “Especially this girl [Chloe]… This girl calmed the whole plane down and took [Miley] under her wing as if she was one of her own. So professional making everyone comfortable and able to enjoy [their] flight.”

Murray told Fox News that she learned the crew member’s name was Chloe Stapleton Moore, and that she purchased her a gift card as a thank you.

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="Moore even shared the post on her own&nbsp;Facebook, commenting, "It’s not always about chicken or beef folks."” data-reactid=”32″>Moore even shared the post on her own Facebook, commenting, “It’s not always about chicken or beef folks.”

“She deserves the notice and Aer Lingus [definitely] do as well,” Murray said. “I’ll be flying with them for life.”

Aer Lingus did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.
