IMG_8490 2 (1)The GoPro camera belonging to a woman who was killed by a tree knocked down by high winds in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and left behind on an American Airlines flight was personally returned by an airline employee to the family.

The camera belonged to Laila Jiwani, who was hiking with her husband and three children on Porter Creek Trail on December 27, 2018, when the tree fell.

The cousin of the husband posted a plea on Twitter, asking American Airlines for assistance since the camera contained the woman’s last videos.

“Please help us locate this ASAP,” the cousin, Aysha Moosa, said in a tweet.

An American Airlines employee who flew from Midland International Air and Space Port in Tennessee to Dallas with the GoPro in hand returned the camera.

“We just got the @GoPro thanks to Ms. Rebecca Burt of American Airlines who flew from Midland to DFW to hand deliver it to us,” Moosa posted on Twitter.
