A passenger jet had to go back to the airport after its mother allegedly forgot her baby on the ground.
Audio has been released apparently showing the moment Saudi flight SV832 from Jeddah to Kuala Lumpur requested permission to return to King Abdul Aziz International Airport.
The pilot says: ‘May God be with us. Can we come back or what?’
They then start talking about protocol as they’ve never experienced anything like that before.
The operator says: ‘This flight is requesting to come back…a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.’
They then ask for confirmation of the reason they want to go back to the airport. The pilot says: ‘We told you, a passenger left her baby in the terminal and refuses to continue the flight.’
‘Okay, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us!’ Flight tracking data show the plane took off an hour late on Saturday.
