Sometimes at the end of a travel day with kids, parents and kids are just done. As in, “I literally can’t take one more step” done. If you don’t have children, imagine your most exhausting travel day, and then add in managing a couple of heavy, exhausted, squealing, (cute) piglets, and you’re about 50% of the way there. I’ve done some interesting things to get my daughters through those last few steps of going from Point A to Point B when everyone is spent, but I’ve never done what this parent apparently decided was his last resort to get his children through the airport.
According to the information on the video posted below, on New Year’s Day, a man at Washington, DC’s Dulles International Airport (IAD) pulled his child by the hood of her jacket through the airport across the floor. It actually sounds worse than it looked on the video. She was said to not be screaming and doesn’t appear to be struggling or distressed in the video. There was also reportedly a second child, likely a sister, who was walking behind the child who was sliding across the floor by her hood.
