Baby Forces Plane to Turn Around - Left Alone at Airport

OK - so it wasn't entirely the baby's fault.

I know when I travel with my family, there are so may things that I am paranoid I may have forgotten... things such as the tickets, the passports, the chargers - I am constantly freaking out about what I might have left on the dresser at home.

Flight SV832 bound for Kuala Lumpur was forced to return to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia when a woman discovered that she had left her baby at the airport boarding gate.

But I can tell you that NOT EVEN ONCE did I ever worry that I might have left one of the kids behind when I boarded a plane (and the flight had already left)!

Home Alone
Perhaps setting the scene for a new installment in the 'Home Alone' movies, one lady has done just that.

Once Flight SV832 had departed Jeddah, Saudi Arabia bound for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the very distressed woman told the flight crew that she had accidentally left her baby at the airport. The crew told the pilot who radioed the tower with this bizarre news. The audio from that conversation has been posted to social media and in it, the pilot explains in Arabic and English that there was a baby alone at the airport and requested permission to turn the plane around and return.

May God be with us. Can we come back or what?

Asked to repeat what he said, the pilot stated, "One passenger forgot her baby in the terminal, she refuses to continue the flight... May God be with us. Can we come back or what?"

a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.

The Air Traffic Controller can be heard in the recording asking a colleague what to do, "The flight is requesting to come back... a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing."

Eventually, the plane was allowed to return and in what turned out to be a happy ending, the mother and her baby were safely reunited. However, the question behind how a person can forget their baby in such a manner, has been left unanswered.
