Disturbing footage from a Spirit Airlines flight shows a family getting kicked off the plane because their two-year-old was eating — without a mask.
The video captured by a nearby passenger shows a flight attendant ordering the family off the flight, prompting the confused parents to ask how an infant child is supposed to eat with a mask over her face.
“What did we do?” the masked father asks.
“Non-compliance with the masks,” the flight attendant responds curtly.
“We’re wearing masks,” the mother says.
“She’s not wearing one,” the flight attendant says, pointing to the child eating her food.
“The baby?” the mother asks.
Other passengers tried to help, explaining that the family has been wearing their masks the whole time aboard the plane.
“It’s not my choice, not my choice,” the attendant says. “The pilot wants you off.”
“She’s a baby,” the mother says. “She’s just turned two a month ago.”
The video ends with the flight attendant leaving to get the pilot as the exasperated family remains in their seats confused about the situation.
