A Colorado mother says her family was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight due to a pilot’s concern that her disabled 3-year-old son might not keep his mask on during the entire flight, despite her insistence that the boy had undergone training to keep his mask on at all times.
What are the details?
Caroline Scott told “Fox & Friends” that she called Southwest ahead of their flight to alert them that her son, Orion, has sensory processing disorder — which makes him feel touch more strongly than others — but that the family had prepared to be sure he could remain masked up if any issues arose.
The Scotts wanted to make sure there wasn’t any trouble on their trip to visit Orion’s 94-year-old great-grandmother in Florida, KVOA-TV reported.
“He’s been working really hard with his occupational therapist, with his doctors, with us as his parents,” Scott told Fox co-host Ainsley Earhardt, according to dictation by The Daily Caller. “And so I’d called the airline ahead of time just to let them know that my son had sensory processing disorder and that we didn’t need an exemption, he can wear his mask and he will, but that if he had any frustration or difficulties that we as his parents had the tools and skills we needed to help him to cope with that and to keep his mask on.”
According to Scott, Southwest said they would make a note about the situation and that there would not be an issue. But once they arrived at their gate, the agent saw the note on Orion’s ticket and flagged it. The agent told Scott, “We need to get a supervisor to approve you all to fly today.”
There was a back-and-forth between Southwest employees, but the supervisor agreed to allow the family to board after Scott’s assurances that she could “100% guarantee” Orion would keep his mask on.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
