“Erik Harvey, his wife Michelle, and their two-and-a-half-year-old son Jackson were all set to fly from Denver to Austin through Southwest Airlines on April 1st,” Fox 13 reported.

Erik and his wife were well aware of the mask mandate for kids over age two. They had to teach Jackson that he has to wear a face mask.

“I practiced with him at least two or three times at the house and every time he threw it off, but I figured that [Southwest] would work with us on the plane because he’s two,” Michelle recalled.

The kid was wearing his mask but he removed it when they sat down.

“The [flight attendant] came up to me and, at that point, Jackson had taken off his mask. She said, ‘I’m sorry, ma’am. You’re going to have to get off the plane. Your son needs to wear his mask,’” she explained.

Southwest released a statement following the unpleasant incident:

“We regret the inconvenience this family experienced on their recent Southwest Airlines trip. However, federal law requires all Customers two and over to wear a face mask while at the airport and onboard the aircraft. This is communicated to Customers in multiple areas including during the booking process, checking in, boarding, and pre-flight messaging. Our Customer Relations Team has reached out to the Customers to further discuss the situation.”

Erik posted a video on Facebook.

“We walked off that plane in daze,” he said.

Family friend James Peck watched Erik’s video and rushed to help them.

“I knew that I could use that as a great excuse to go take a flight and help them out and get them here,” said the pilot. The man flew his twin-engine airplane to Denver, got the Harveys, and took them to Austin for free.

“I just was floored. I just said [to my husband], ‘You know what, babe? I’m nervous, but I feel like turning him down would be rude like this is an opportunity,” Michelle commented.

The pilot offered the family to take them back to Denver once the trip was over.

“The miracles will come to you, things will show up, and that Good Samaritan will show up,” Erik said of the great gesture.
