PORTLAND, Oregon (WTHR) - A teenage girl is being called a hero for her act of kindness towards a man in need.

This was taken aboard an Alaska Airlines flight heading to Oregon.

Passenger Tim Cook was heading to Portland and was having trouble speaking with staff.

Tim is both blind and deaf.

Luckily 15-year old Clara Daly was also on-board and could help because she understood sign language.

"I thought someday I would run into someone that would need my help,” Daly said. “In a small variation...but not to this extent."
