It could be the pitch for a remake of Home Alone. Except it's a true story. On the weekend of March 9-10, a mother noticed, in the middle of a flight, that she hadforgotten her baby at the airport.
She was leaving Saudi Arabia and was flying to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In the middle of the trip, she realized that she was missing something... or rather someone. Distraught, she warned the flight attendantsand begged the pilot to turn around, according to a report by the International Business Times.
The child is safe and sound
After some tough negotiations, the captain finally agreed to return to King Abdelaziz Airport, where the baby was found safe and sound. The child was in one of the terminals, where its mother forgot it when boarding.
The pilot of the plane received very positive messages on social networks.
