Livid Toms River, New Jersey Family Thrown Off Flight Toddler And Special Needs Child Not Wearing Masks
A Toms River family is deeply upset that they were kicked off a Spirit Airlines flight from Orlando, Florida, to Atlantic City because of the adults’ failure to comply with mask wearing mandates. As the below Twitter video shows, the adults were wearing masks (as least they were during the portion of this video taken by a fellow passenger). However, the couple have a 7 year old non-verbal son who suffers from seizures and flight anxiety and after attempting to have him wear a mask, they ultimately decided not to aggravate his condition by enforcing it. In addition, the couple's two year old daughter was eating yogurt on her mother's lap and not wearing a mask on the plane.
