A couple claimed they were forced out of the United Airlines flight because their two-year-old daughter refused to wear a face mask. The woman heard her tragedy on social media. Alison Orbán shared a video on Instagram on Friday, where she was at the airport with her husband and daughter Edlin after getting off the plane.
“We just took a flight, because our two-year-old child was not wearing a mask,” said Orbon. DailyMail reported that the family was traveling from Colorado to Newark, New Jersey.
The video clip shows the plane crew exiting the plane, even as parents try to put masks on their daughter’s face. But the child is adamant about not wearing a mask and soon a crew member goes to the family and asks them to leave the plane.
The airline has clarified that the family is not banned from flying with United Airlines in the future.
“Hello sir. I’m going to ask you to grab your luggage and get out of the plane,” the agent can be heard saying.
Orban’s husband replied: “You are kidding me. Why? We are holding this mask here on his face.” However, the agent asked them to leave the plane, even as the couple tried to convince that they could not force their daughter to put it on because she was ‘crying’. The family is then seen to collect their belongings and leave the plane.
