Plane Has to Turn Around After a Mom Forgot Her Baby

12th March 2019

We’ve all had a moment of panic when we realize the house is too quiet and that we haven’t checked on this kids in awhile. And traveling with kids can be stressful. But this takes “mom brain” to a whole new level.

A Saudi Arabian Airlines flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia had to turn around after a young mother alerted the crew in a panic that she had forgotten to bring her baby onboard.

In audio posted on social media, a confused air traffic controller can be heard saying, “The flight is requesting to come back… a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.”

They allowed the plane to return, telling the flight deck, “Okay, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us.” We’re guessing (and hoping) it was a totally new one for everyone involved.

The mother and child were successfully reunited.

So next time you realize you forgot to pack the kids an extra snack or a change of clothes for the plane ride, just take comfort in the fact that at least you remembered to bring the kids!
