The Video Of A Child Throwing Tantrums In An 8 Hour Long Flight Goes Viral And Stirred a Big Debate Online

We all love kids and in words of Mr Chandler Bing, “We love them to de*th.”

But having kids on a flight can complicate the whole process especially when they are flying for the first time. But we still somehow manage as they are kids and they have not yet entered into the world of social boundaries.

Still, what happened in this particular video was a bit extreme.

The video was captured by a passenger named Shane Townley while he was on a eight hour long flight from Germany to the United States. A long flight like this can be taxing for even an experienced traveler but the flight became a true nightmare for few because of unusually rowdy three-year-old child.

In the video, you can see that the child is sitting above the normal line of seats possibly on someone’s shoulders. Moments later, the mother urges a stewardess to see if the WiFi could be turned on more quickly so that she can distract him with an iPad.

After the take off, the child was running up and down the aisles. 

This kept him quiet for a while at the expense of a lot of discomfort to fellow passengers. But this relief was short-lived as soon he started screaming at the top of his voice. Although the video is a bit rough and we can understand the plight of passengers but Townley’s reaction to the whole situation seemed a bit extreme especially the title of the video.

According to Inside Edition, the mother said that her son had behavioral problems. 

Sure the situation could have been handled in a better way if the mother just had a few pre-downloaded videos on her i-pad.

The video has had 9 million plus views so far and has caused a big debate online.
