Mum Forgets Baby At Airport, Boards Flight
A Saudi woman forgot her baby in the airport terminal compelling the pilot to make a U-Turn after she suddenly remembered and raised alarm. The Kuala Lumpur-bound flight headed back to the airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The frantic mother told the crew that she had accidentally left her baby in the boarding area of the terminal,
Subsequent conversation between the Saudi Airlines pilot and air traffic control revealed the pilot as saying, “May God be with us. Can we come back or what? This flight is requesting to come back. A passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.”
The flight eventually returned to the airport in Jeddah. Describing it as “a totally new” experience, air traffic control granted the flight permission to return, and the distressed mother was reunited with her child.
