An antsy 3-year-old boy was kicked off an Alaska Airlines flight, after refusing to put no his seatbelt and causing a scene, the Associated Press reported.
The toddler Daniel Yanchuck, was sitting with his father on row 23 of a red-eye flight bound for Miami when he started to get impatient and caused a scene.
Flight attendants tried to help by moving the boy's mother closer. She who was sitting elsewhere on the plane due to seating restrictions.
After travelling just 50 feet, the pilot made an announcement that the plane would be going back to the gate. Upon arrival the toddler was kicked off the flight.
Daniel's mother, Svetlana Yanchuck, said the incident was extremely embarrassing and she felt as though her family was treated like criminals.
The Yanchuck family, who were traveling to the Virgin Islands, said the incident did not merit throwing the 3-year-old off the plane. The Airline offered to book them on another flight, but they declined the offer and are waiting for a refund.
A flight attendant told Kiro TV that even though the boy had his seat belt on for the most part, it wa around his neck with his legs dangling out below his seat.
