Pilot Forced To Turn Plane Around After Mother Forgets Baby at Airport
A Saudia plane had to return to the airport after taking off as a passenger on board had forgotten her baby at the terminal.
According to Gulf News, the flight from Jeddah was said to be on its way to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, when the woman realised she was missing her child and alerted cabin crew.
A video went viral on social media showing the pilot requesting permission to head back to the airport, while talking to ATC operators – who were caught by surprise and were scampering around to figure out the protocol to be observed for such an incident.
“May God be with us. Can we come back or what?” the pilot was heard talking to air traffic controller.
He was then cleared to return to the airport.
