Disabled 5-Year-Old Kicked Out Of Mall, Told His Wheelchair Was A ‘Safety Hazard’

Video footage shows the parents of Isiah Tate being told their son’s wheelchair was not allowed in the play area of the Mall of Georgia. “…It’s mall policy to keep them out of this area” said the security guard. Isiah is nonverbal and mobility impaired however according to his mother, April Tate, “…Isiah laughs and giggles and he’s so animated. You can tell that he really enjoys being [in the play area]. The Tate’s have since been issued an apology. “Our expectation is to provide an inclusive environment that is safe, comfortable and accessible for everyone, and we have no policy that states otherwise. We have connected with Isaiah’s mother to rectify the unfortunate and unacceptable misunderstanding,” said the mall in a statement. WSB-TV
