Jennifer, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, has asked parents to pay attention to the safety of their children while flying. They have urged that parents to buy seats and FAA-approved carriers for their infants while flying.
At the same time, Jennifer stressed that even small bumps during the flight can cause injuries, so children should be seated in a safe seat instead of sitting on their lap. Airlines can charge money for this. But at least it will be good for the safety of the children.
The Alaska Airlines plane with 171 passengers and six crew on board was on board when its door broke mid-air on January 5 in the US. The airline’s flight took off from Portland International Airport. Shortly after takeoff, the crew encountered the air pressure situation in the aircraft. Shortly after this, the window panel of the aircraft broke. This was the emergency exit door of the plane, after which the plane made an emergency landing back at Portland Airport.
It is being told that three passengers aboard Boeing 737 were not wearing seatbelts. Jennifer, chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, said Sunday that three children were on the lap of caregivers on the plane.
Children under the age of two…
According to the New York Post, children under the age of two can fly for free and do not need a separate plane ticket to the US. Instead, they can be seated on their parent or guardian’s lap. That is, only the hands of the elders are there for the safety of the children.
“If a child was released from a parent’s hands by the wind, it would not have been possible to save him,” said Kwasi Adjekum, assistant professor in the University of North Dakota’s Department of Aviation.
