An autistic four-year-old who suffered a tantrum during a United Airline flight was calmed by an attentive flight crew and patient passengers who were willing to spend time entertaining him.

Lori Gabriel struggled to control her son, Braysen, when they flew from San Diego to Houston in early August.

& # 39; So my little flyer (he's autistic, but normally loves to fly) didn't have a good flight home, & # 39; she shared on a Facebook post shared more than 1,300 times. & # 39; Trying to let him sit was impossible, he wanted to sit on the floor in the hall and in first class. & # 39;

Gabriel explained that her son was exceptionally violent on the run – kicking, screaming and beating her and her husband.

She explained CNN those flight attendants came to her seat and told her that the plane could only take off when Braysen sat.

Gabriel informed them about her son's condition and they let her hold him on her lap as the flight departed. Her husband held it up until the seat belt light went out and the younger person demanded that he be allowed on the floor.

& # 39; When he is stimulated, he feels better due to the vibration, & # 39; said Gabriel.

Braysen started kicking the chair of a woman who was sitting next to the family, who happened to be out of service.

The woman not only told the concerned mother that her son was not bothered, but she also wrote Gabriel a heart-warming note that she gave to the mother at the end of the flight after she had embraced Braysen. Gabriel has shared the note on Facebook.

& # 39; I praise you or your strength, & # 39; she said in the letter. & # 39; Never let anyone give you the feeling that you are an inconvenience or a burden. He is a blessing. & # 39;

The employee continued: & # 39; God bless your patience, your love, your support, and your strength. Continue to be a super woman. And know that you and your family are loved and supported. & # 39;

Gabriel responded to the note in her post and said, "Thanks for the lady who wrote this note to me in seat 7D, you may not know how much that means to us if we feel defeated." Thank you for helping and being kind. & # 39;

The post included photos of Braysen in first class and the mother shared that after leaving the stewardess, he walked to the front of the plane and kicked a man there.

& # 39; So I said to the man: & # 39; I'm sorry, & # 39; but he said he didn't mind, he introduced himself to Braysen and gave him high fives, & # 39; the mother shared. & # 39; He said: & # 39; he can kick my chair, I don't care. & # 39;

& # 39; Everyone in first class was nice to him, asked for his name, showed him pictures on their phones and left him sitting whenever he wanted. The flight attendants always asked if we needed anything, and made sure that everyone was taken care of. & # 39;

United responded to the loving story on Twitter.

& # 39; It certainly sounds like Braysen and your family have had a great flight, & # 39; said the airline. & # 39; We are happy that our crew has been able to make it a pleasant experience. We are delighted to see that we also have such loving and supportive passengers on board! We look forward to seeing Braysen again soon! & # 39;
