A family flying from Denver to Newark say they had to leave a flight after their two-year-old refused to wear a mask.
The mother, Eliz Orban, shared a video online of trying to get their two-year-old daughter to wear a mask, clearly struggling.
A flight attendant took notice and said that they had to leave the flight due to her not wearing the mask.
The couple claims that they were banned from United forever, though they could be allowed back once the mask ordinance is lifted.
As reported by Fox News:
In a statement sent to Fox News, a United Airlines spokesperson said, “The health and safety of our employees and customers is our highest priority, which is why we have a multi-layered set of policies, including mandating that everyone on board 2 and older wears a mask.”
“These procedures are not only backed by guidance from the CDC [The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and our partners at the Cleveland Clinic, but they’re also consistent across every major airline,” the statement continued.
The spokesperson also noted that the Orban family has not been banned from flying with the airline.
