The friendly skies are being made safe from babies and senior citizens.

She’s approaching what some folks call the “terrible twos,” but an 18-month old named Riyanna has now been suspected as a terrorist. The scene was at a Ft. Lauderdale airport on Tuesday. Riyanna and her parents had just boarded a JetBlue flight when an airline employee asked them to leave the plane, saying representatives from the Transportation Security Administration wanted to speak to them.

When the child’s mother asked what they wanted to talk anout, the employee said, according to wpbf.com, “It's not you or your husband. Your daughter was flagged as no fly.” The family was kept off the plane for 30 minutes before their daughter received flight clearance.

Jet Blue released a statement saying they believed the mistake came from a computer glitch. According to wpbf.com, their statement said: “Our crewmembers followed the appropriate protocols, and we apologize to the family involved in this unfortunate circumstance."
