TikTok: Yiayia becomes viral for hugging the crying baby of a tourist (VIDEO)


A video of an American tourist resting in the Athens subway with her child sleeping in the arms of an unknown grandmother has gone viral on TikTok.

At the end of June, dietician Deanna published on her TikTok account a video of her walk in the centre of Athens when she came to our country on vacation with her husband, her mother and their 19-month-old daughter, Harper.

As she revealed in the video on TikTok, she was with her family on the subway when her daughter started crying. Then an unknown woman took little Harper in her arms and tried to calm her down.

Deanna wrote, "good humans exist love on the public metro in Athens and a grandmother takes our crying toddler to try & soothe her."
