A mother of twins spoke out after airlines’ staff harshly told her to leave the plane they boarded due to lack of space.
According to Mackenzie Murphy, a fashion and lifestyle blogger who witnessed the moment, the young mother was told to get off the plane because the plane was overloaded and she wasn’t able to put one of her twins in a car seat she brought with her.
“Yesterday, this woman on my flight had twin babies, probably under 6 months, not so sure of the age.
It was a very packed flight so they started taking carry-on luggage to store under the plane,” Ms. Murphy wrote.
“A gate worker took this woman’s car seat, meaning she would now have to hold both babies since they weren’t old enough to sit up on their own in a seat.”
While using a car seat on a plane is allowed as long as there is space, the mother’s option was taken away when the staff took her car seat.
After the mother told them she will just hold both babies in her arms instead, the airlines told her she wasn’t allowed to do so due to safety reasons and asked her to leave.
“A mother sitting in front of me, with permission from the other mother, volunteered to hold one of her babies for the entire flight.
Keep in mind this was a flight that was supposed to be a quick 45 minutes. We ended up sitting on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours!
Without a complaint, this woman fed the other woman’s baby, burped him,” Murphy added.
“Her own daughter started crying. This mom, so calmly, went on to explain to her young daughter that ‘our job is to help other people.
This mom is all by herself with no help, and really needs another mom to help.’
She then went on to hold him, sing him songs, and then he slept the entire flight without even a cry.”
