Authorities on the ground say they were contacted while the plane was en route after flight attendants and passengers say they witnessed a distraught mother trying to calm her screaming one-year old child. The mother had reportedly slapped the child. That’s when the flight attendant immediately grabbed the baby away from its parents.
Rita Hoffmann, another passenger on the Southwest flight, disagrees. “I would just maybe, you know, [ask] ‘Can we help you?’ or something like that, that would be more courteous, and understand the mother was tired.”
Police took the child into their custody at the gate, performed a welfare check and determined there were no signs of any physical abuse. After police questioned the couple, the flight attendant, and witnesses, the child was returned to the parents who were not cited.
What do you think of this?? Right? Wrong? What would you have done??
