The man, a frustrated father, according to news reports, is seen pulling his daughter behind him by her pink jacket hood as another little girl follows carrying a couple of backpacks and wheeling a suitcase.

The girl, with her arms resting across her stomach, seems fine with the ride. She’s not kicking or screaming and doesn’t seem bothered at all by the airport spectacle, and neither does her father.
