An airplane crew has caught a woman who hid a baby inside luggage bag on board airplane. The shocking incident left the crew members and passengers stunned. The woman was flying from Istanbul to Paris and presumably hid her baby inside the luggage to avoid cost. Crew members on board the Airbus319 headed to the French capital from Ataturk airport said the baby ‘seemed well’.
‘The bag belonged to a woman who sat near the back of the plane,’ a passenger named Vincent, 36, told Planet.fr. ‘At one point, she wanted to open it and her neighbour on the other row of seats saw there was something hidden in the interior. ‘He alerted the crew who discovered inside a baby aged one or two.’
Following the discovery, the woman and her baby were promptly escorted to the front of the plane, where they stayed until landing, Metro reports.
Air France said in a statement that an inquiry was underway. As for the passenger who noticed the baby in the bag, a crew member said he was ‘very shocked'.
