A couple is going viral after leaving for their holiday, without their two-year-old, who wouldn’t wear a mask.
According to media sources, the couple was kicked off from a United Airlines flight, after their toddler refused to wear the protective gear. But instead of changing their holiday plans, they decided to go ahead and venture off without their daughter.
The mum, Eliza Orban explains how she was absolutely devastated and ‘heartbroken’ when she and her husband had to make the difficult decision. And that meant leaving their 2-year old child behind, as they headed out for a festive holiday.
Earlier this month, the family made heads turn when they were forced to get off a flight as their little one threw tantrums about donning a facemask. The family claim that they were heading towards Newark from Denver when the incident took place.
The couple was super excited and ecstatic to visit the magical Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree in New York City. While the pair tried their level best at covering their little child’s mouth with alternate means, she just wouldn’t comply.
Therefore, the video of the incident was posted on social media, going viral in minutes. In the short clip, Eliza explains how the family got kicked off of a flight because their toddler wouldn’t put a mask on.
Recent news sources mentioned how the couple decided to go away with another airline, Delta, bagging first-class seats too. However, they left their little 2-year-old behind.
Taking to her social media account, the mother explained how she is traumatized by the decision.
They even tried to call the airlines but simply wouldn’t get a straight and upfront answer from them.On that note, they felt that they couldn’t go through the same turmoil again. “Just driving towards the airport today was super triggering,” claims Eliza.
The couple added how their daughter is in the ‘best of hands at home,’ as they jet off for their thrilling holiday spree.
While it is a difficult time for both the parents, they are at peace, knowing their daughter is surrounded by must love.“We simply couldn’t make her go through what we went through again,” said the mom.
While some social media users expressed a nod of approval on the couple’s decision, others referred to them as ‘morons’ for their action.
