A Southwest Airlines flight attendant reportedly removed a baby from her parents’ care mid-flight after witnessing the mother slap her crying child.
Flight 879 was enroute to Albuquerque from Dallas on Monday when the incident occurred. The flight attendant did return the 1-year-old girl to her parents just before the plane landed.
“Our flight attendants do great customer service,” said Southwest Airlines spokesman Brad Hawkins. “In this case, it was a baby that was upset, and the flight attendant asked the mother if she wanted help with the baby.”
He declined to release the name of the flight attendant.
