Bizarre! Woman passenger forgets baby at airport; pilot turns plane back to pick it


Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), March 12: Forgetting or getting baggage misplaced is not uncommon during air travel and in such cases, the authorities do not go to the extreme of turning a plane back to pick up a piece of baggage left behind.

Bizarre! Woman passenger forgets baby at airport; pilot turns plane back to pick it

However, in one bizarre incident that happened at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a woman 'forgot' to take her newborn on board. She came to realise that her baby was left back at the departure only after the plane had taken off, as per a report in Gulf News. She raised an alarm and the pilot was forced to return to the airport to pick up the baby.

Bizarre indeed!

According to reports, Flight SV832 headed for Kuala Lumpur from Jeddah was flown back after the woman passenger informed the cabin crew about her blunder. Later, a video of the pilot requesting the Air Traffic Control (ATC) to allow the aircraft to land back at the airport went viral on social media.

The ATC crew were completely taken aback by this since they had never across such an experience earlier. They figured out the protocol to be observed in such situations

"This flight is requesting to come back...a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing," the pilot was heard telling the ATC operators in the video.

"Ok, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us!" says an ATC operator.

The mother eventually got united with her baby after the flight returned.

We hope she doesn't repeat the same again.
