A three-year-old boy who refused to use his seatbelt has been kicked off a flight at a US airport.

The Alaska Airlines pilot returned to the gate at Sea-Tac Airport, in Seattle, and asked the boy and his father to get off.

Alaska Airlines says it was a matter of safety and the pilot would rather deal with it on the ground than in mid-flight.

The father, Mark Yancha, said the crew overreacted.
