Family Removed From Southwest Flight After Three-Year-Old Won't Wear Mask

A Texas woman, her baby daughter and her autistic three-year-old boy were kicked off a Southwest flight Monday after the son refused to wear a mask. Alyssa Sadler says she had to get off the flight from Midland to Houston. Masks are required on passengers two and up, but Sadler says her son can't deal with having his face touched. She had a note from a doctor. Still, Southwest said the policy is clear enough, and they regret they weren't able to fly the family.
