Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, questioned a Georgia woman after witnesses said they saw her slap her 13-month-old child during a flight, according to police reports.
A flight attendant on a Southwest Airlines flight from Dallas, Texas, to Albuquerque told police she saw the woman “strike the child with an open hand on the face in an attempt to get the child to stop crying,” a police report states. The flight attendant also said she saw the mother slapping the child on her legs.
The woman appeared “agitated,” the flight attendant said, and the husband was yelling at his wife to shut up due to her screaming at the child, the report states.
