Mother Takes Off On A Plane Accidentally Leaving Her Baby At The Airport And I Don’t Understand

I really have no words.

So, a mother left her baby at an airport (allegedly). She boarded a plane, got nice and comfortable in her seat, and the plane took off.

I mean … is that something you just forget?

The mother, whose name we don’t know, was on a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight bound for Kuala Lampur when she happened to notice her baby wasn’t with her.

Mid flight, she started telling the cabin crew that she left her bundle of joy sitting at King Abdul Aziz International Airport.

The baby was left, hanging out in the boarding area.

I have so many questions.

Of course, the first question being HOW DO YOU LEAVE YOUR BABY AT THE AIRPORT?

I mean, she went through the whole ritual of getting on the plane, strapping herself in the seat, and leaving the fricking airport by way of the sky.

How distracted was she?

Did the ground crew not notice an infant left alone at the gate?

That must be one quiet baby to not grab the attention of personnel.

This caused all sorts of commotion between the flight crew and ground control. They had to make the decision to turn the plane, I’m guessing full of people, back to its original destination.

In a now viral video, the plane can be heard talking to the ATC operators from where they took off. You can listen as the ground personnel, confused, asks, “Sir, confirm. You are returning back to (the) gate?”

The ATC operators were left scrambling to figure if there was protocol for such a strange request. They didn’t know exactly how to handle the mom’s mistake. Eventually, the plane was allowed to come back to the departing airport.

Kudos to the pilot for showing such compassion, and making the hard decision to turn the entire plane around for this unusual “emergency.”

But, again I have to scratch my head and ask, HOW DO YOU LEAVE YOUR CHILD BEHIND AT AN AIRPORT?

You can watch the video below and decide for yourself.

My mom and dad forgot me at a daycare center when I was a baby (1968)! They had left me, my older sister and older brother there while out with friends and when they came to pick us up, my mom said my brother and sister ran up to them all excited that they scooped them up and left.... half way home, my mom screamed "We forgot Claudia!" so they drove back and got me. I was an infant and still in the crib - so I guess it was my fault! HA HA! Needless to say, I NEVER let my parents forget that story and they owe me for life!
