Kindness stuns mom after son’s ‘autistic meltdown’

(KOMONEWS) — BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. — A Bainbridge Island mother received an unexpected act of kindness when her son had a meltdown at a local diner, and now the gesture is going viral.

Everyone has been out to a meal when a child loses it. Six-year-old Elliot recently had one of those moments, which his mother called “an autistic meltdown.”

“Just after we ordered our food, he just spiraled into a complete autistic meltdown, yelling and screaming. It’s a temper tantrum on a whole another level,” said Lauren Nordberg.
