A boy with autism wouldn’t sit still on a United Airlines flight. So crew and passengers stepped in to help.

Braysen is a 4-year-old autistic boy who usually loves to fly. But he had a meltdown on a United Airlines flight from San Diego to Houston.
That was when the aircraft’s crew and passengers came together to help him.
The boy’s mother, Lori Gabriel of Cypress, Texas, told CNN that Braysen removed his seat belt just before takeoff, saying he wanted to sit on the floor.
“It was impossible to restrain him. He was fighting both me and his father. It took the both of us to try to get him back to his chair and get his seat belt back on. He started kicking, screaming and hitting,” said Gabriel. “That’s when a flight attendant came over and told us the flight couldn’t take off until he’s seated.”
