From Daily Mail:
A passenger filmed a flight from hell after a 'demonic' youngster screamed for the entirety of his eight hour flight.
New York City artist Shane Townley recorded the unruly toddler as he clambered over the seats and screamed at the top of his voice - before the Lufthansa flight from Germany to New York, on August 26 last year, had even taken off.
The boy's mother, who is not identified but appears to be American, attempted to soothe her son by asking a flight attendant to 'get the WiFi going so we can get the iPad going'.
The young boy suffers from a disability, which has not been specified, that affects his behavior a source told DailyMail.com.
When the plane finally arrived in Newark Airport, people looked relieved that the ordeal was over.
'What a nightmare, oh my God - eight hours of screaming' one passenger was heard to comment as she wheeled her suitcase down the ramp.
Townley uploaded the footage on YouTube with the title: 'Demonic child screams and runs through an 8 hour flight'.
He wrote: 'Watch as this kid runs and screams throughout the entire flight while the mother does little to nothing to stop him.
'3 years old on a 8 hour flight from Germany to Newark NJ. He never quits!'
He told the DailyMail.com that he had not filed a complaint with the airline 'but I’m certain someone did as the entire plane was affected the whole time.'
He explained that staff had 'tried to intervene but the mother said he just needs his internet.'
'Well internet doesn’t work until the flight is in the air. Once he got started he didn’t stop for 8 hours,' he added.
A Lufthansa spokesman told DailyMail.com that most passengers 'were quite understanding of the situation at hand'
'Our crew worked around-the-clock to de-escalate the situation, tend to all passengers and assist the mother.'
They added that they were unable to comment further because of the 'individual’s medical privacy.'
The video has attracted dozens of comments from appalled viewers who suggested that the boy and his parents should have been removed from the flight when they proved unable to control their child.
'If this started before the plane took off, the plane should have taxied back to the terminal and kicked the kid and his parents off. This kind of behaviour is just unacceptable,' one commenter wrote.
'Call an exorcist,' another added.
