A mother has been applauded for publicly shaming the woman she claims told her to “shut up” her disabled daughter while on an international flight.
Nicola Colenso was travelling with her family when her eight-year-old daughter suffered a mid-flight meltdown.
Daughter Yasmin suffers from Sturge-Weber syndrome – a condition that affects the brain, skin and eyes.
Mother Nicola and father Rick were trying to soothe Nicola when a fellow passenger allegedly turned around and told them to “shut that child up!”.
Nicola shared the story on Facebook with a post aimed at attracting the attention of the woman involved.
