SEATAC, Wash. —

A 3-year-old boy who wouldn't use his seatbelt never got off the ground on an Alaska Airlines flight at Sea-Tac Airport.

The pilot returned to the gate Saturday and asked the father and the boy to get off.

The father, Mark Yanchak of Everett, told KIRO-FM (http://is.gd/CxbZIF) the crew overreacted.

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