It is not unusual for travelers to forget some of their belongings at the airport, but this was something extraordinary.

As a result, flight SV 832 which was heading to Kuala Lumpur was returned back to Jeddah. After the incident, a video went viral on social media of the communication between the pilot and the control tower. We have translated the content of the video for our users.

The response on Social Media

While the woman was criticized on social media for her irresponsible behavior, people took the opportunity to praise the pilot for his humanity. How on earth is it possible that somebody forgets her infant at an airport? Indeed, it is a matter of grave negligence on the part of the mother. 

Obviously, he took the decision to return the flight back to the airport considering it an emergency situation as there was no one at Jeddah airport to take care of the baby. The immigration procedures were already done and no one could take the baby back to the city.
