Flight Attendant Takes Infant from MOm Who Slapped Her in Face

Great job to the flight attendant here.  The New Mexico police wasted no time coming out to defend her actions.  From the New York Daily News:

A flight attendant broke up a family feud on Monday, removing a baby from her parents after the mother slapped the child onboard a flight.


Beverly McCurley, a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines, told police she got involved when passengers complained a mother on the plane was hitting her 13-month-old daughter in the face to stop her from crying, The Associated Press reports.

McCurley found the baby’s parents fighting furiously, and saw the mother, Lee Ann Cid, "strike the child with an open hand on the face," according to ABC News.

"The mother appeared agitated with the child," reads the police report. "The husband continued to yell at his wife to shut up due to her screaming at the child."

When the plane landed in Albuquerque, paramedics checked the baby while Lee Ann and her husband Joseph met with aviation police.

The police also interviewed McCurley and some of the passengers who witnessed the scene.


After determining the mother's behavior appeared to be an isolated case, the police returned the baby to the parents, who did not receive a citation and were allowed to continue to their final destination.

The child did have a black eye, ABC reports, but the Cids told police it was caused by an uncle's dog.
