It seems that it isn't just whiny, self-centered adults who can't be deprived of their precious gadgets on a plane for even 10 minutes.
For a 3-year-old on an Alaska Airlines flight plane threw such severe conniptions after his iPadwas taken away before takeoff that he (and his family) were removed from the plane.
It seems that the unnamed 3-year-old is the son of Washington State resident Mike Yanchak. The family was reportedly flying to St. Martin Island from Seattle. The boy was playing quietly with an iPad before takeoff. But once the iPad had been taken away, a particular kind of hell was let loose.
Well, Yanchak told KIRO-FM radio: "He was crying, being cranky. I started putting him in his seat. I put his seatbelt on. But he was being cranky, trying to be close to me, so he wasn't fully fastened yet."
