(WND News Center) – A mother is reporting she was kicked off an American Airlines flight because her 2-year-old with asthma was unable to wear a mask during an attack, which happened on the flight.

This is the same airline that earlier, according to a photograph, allowed Joe Biden’s climate czar, the globe-trotting John Kerry, to be on a flight without a mask.


A friend confirmed the scenario, advocating for the dismissal of the flight attendant involved, identified only as Carl.

Hello, maybe we get flight attendant fired from @AmericanAir today?

My sweet friend’s 2 year old son was having an asthma attack and wouldn’t keep mask on (because he couldn’t breathe) – and they turned plane around and had police waiting to escort them off. A 2 year old. pic.twitter.com/Ks2VbnNASW

A report at the Gateway Pundit provided a few details of the scenario that is becoming more and more common as mask mandates are thriving in a COVID-obsessed society.

The Gateway Pundit said the situation developed Monday on American Airlines flight 1284, which was turned around so that the airline could kick off the 2-year-old and his mother and grandmother.

“Amanda Pendarvis, the mother, posted on her Instagram story a video of her son who was having an asthma attack and was refusing to put on his mask due to his inability to breathe properly,” the report said.

“I do not have the energy to type all the details right now… but I will in the next couple of days. We are finally in peaceful Colorado with my in-laws and I am very grateful for that. But my mom, Way & me just had the most humiliating/traumatizing experience because of a truly evil, power-tripping flight attendant named Carl @americanair,” she explained.

The parents of Alta Fixsler are pleading with the British courts not to remove life support from their brain-damaged daughter, so that they can transport her to a hospital in Israel or the U.S.

Could you do your part and SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks the British courts and hospital system to allow the Fixslers to remove their daughter from the UK so that she can live, and not be killed by so-called "passive euthanasia" where her life support is taken away?

Late last month, High Court Justice Mr. Alistair McDonald insanely ruled that it is in Alta's "best interests" to have her life support stopped, and that Manchester University NHS could begin the process of removing her life support.

But, Mr. and Mrs. Fixsler, who are are Orthodox Jews living according to Hebrew law, strenuously objected to the hospital depriving Alta of life support and she was given a reprieve, but we don't know how long that will last.

In fact, just yesterday, a British Court of Appeal declined to render judgement in this case, giving more hope that little Alta might be able to leave the UK and be treated in another country.

And, both American and Israeli lawmakers have spoken up against the planned passive euthanasia death of Alta, with a host of U.S. Senators, as well as the Israeli Health Minister and President, petitioning different British officials to stop the process of causing Alta's death.

We concur with what the Senators wrote: "It is unacceptable that people in government think they, not parents, should decide what is in the best interest of a child, even in a matter of life and death."

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition now.

The story of a brain-damaged child in England in danger of a passive euthanasia opposed by both his or her parents and officials overseas is now a distressingly familiar one.

In the 2017 case of Charlie Gard, Pope Francis, President Donald Trump, and 37 European MPs sided with the infant’s parents against the British courts that agreed to allow the NHS to withdraw his life support. Almost one-year-old Charlie died 12 minutes after he was removed from a ventilator.

In 2018, Tom Evans, the Catholic father of Alfie Evans, appealed to Pope Francis on behalf of his almost two-year-old son, and the pontiff did indeed ask for prayers for the youngster. Both Polish and Italian hospitals were willing to treat the brain-injured boy, but the British courts refused to release him. Alfie died four days after he was removed from a ventilator.

In 2019, Tafida Raqeeb, then five years old, made headlines when her Muslim parents fought the Barts Health NHS Trust’s request to stop treating the brain-damaged girl. Once again, an Italian hospital offered to treat the sick child, and in this case the judge – Mr Justice Alistair MacDonald – ruled that the child could be allowed to live and taken to Italy for treatment.

And, in 2021, six-year-old Pippa Knight was not permitted to live despite the wishes of her widowed mother Paula. Pippa died in May after doctors removed her life support.

RIGHT NOW, please help little Alta and her parents fight for her right to live, and not be killed by having her life support removed.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

“I’ll spoil the ending: He had the plane turned around and has us escorted off to be met by police officers: WHY? Wait for it….. because my 2 year old was not properly wearing a mask…. Mind you, Way is asthmatic. We showed him a negative COVID test Way had yesterday. Told him he has asthma & has never worn a mask before. He did not care that this asthmatic child was literally hyperventilating,” she said.

She confirmed she was wearing a mask, and was escorted off while “holding a mask” over her son’s face.

“I genuinely don’t have words,” she said.

American Airline confirmed to National File that the incident was true and the action of the flight attendant was based on the company’s policy.

In just recent days, Alaska Airlines banned a state senator who declined to mask up, forcing her into a 21-hour drive for her commute from her district to her work; Spirit Airlines banished a mother with her 4-year-old who is autistic and had a doctor’s note that he cannot mask up; hundreds of individuals were added to Delta’s no-fly list over their mask concerns, and Southwest Airlines booted a family because a 3-year-old passenger “might not” wear a mask.

Further, a family was told to leave a flight because a 2-year-old girl wasn’t masked – while she was eating. And a Jewish family was ordered off because of a maskless baby.
