Pilot retrieves lost doll for Texas girl stranded in Tokyo


In a heartwarming tale that spanned continents, a pilot turned hero orchestrated the reunion of a 9-year-old Texas girl with her beloved American Girl doll, Beatrice.

Valentina Dominguez and her family were on a journey from Bali to the United States, with a stopover in Tokyo. However, tragedy struck when Valentina’s cherished companion was accidentally left on the Tokyo-bound plane, according to Good Morning America. The distraught family launched a search effort, involving the airline and social media appeals. The call for help was answered by James Danen, an American Airlines pilot, who collaborated with Turkish Airlines’ lost-and-found in Tokyo to track down Beatrice.

With Valentina’s joy in mind, Danen carried the doll across airports worldwide and finally handed it to her in person.
