If you’ve ever flown on a plane, chances are there was a crying child at some point of the flight. Annoying? Yes, but probably only for a few minutes and things are back to normal.
Not quite the same story on a 8-hour flight from Germany to Newark, N.J. In a viral video making the rounds on social media, Shane Townley, a passenger on a Lufthansa flight documented the incident where he says “Watch as this kid runs and screams throughout the entire flight while the mother does little to nothing to stop him,” wrote Townley. “[Three]-year-old on a 8-hour flight from Germany to Newark NJ. He never quits!”
The boy’s mother allegedly tried to calm her son with an iPad, but a flight attendant can be heard telling the woman that the plane’s WiFi wasn’t available prior to takeoff.
At around an hour into the flight, a passenger in Shane’s video can be seen covering her ears as the child continues to scream and run around the plane. The rest of the footage documents the child’s bloodcurdling cries for each of the following seven hours, along with the boy’s subsequent screaming fit upon landing.
