A Brooklyn mother traveling alone with her six children was forced off a JetBlue flight in Orlando, Fla. Wednesday when her 2-year-old daughter wouldn’t wear her mask.
Flight attendants ordered Chaya Bruck of Midwood to get off the Newark-bound plane after her daughter Dina refused to keep the face covering on — and when the desperate mom tried to explain the tot wasn’t cooperating, the attendants told all of the passengers to get off the aircraft.
“It was horrible, the whole experience was traumatizing,” Bruck told the Daily News from Orlando International Airport, where she and her children were still stranded Wednesday afternoon.
“I was trying very hard...(The other children) were wearing their masks with their noses covered,” she said. “It says (on JetBlue’s website) that a child who cannot wear a mask does not have to wear a mask. I tried to tell them this, but they didn’t care...They wanted me off the plane.
