Saudi women forgets baby at the airport

The Saudi Airlines flight had left Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

According to reports, the flight was turned back after the woman passenger informed the cabin crew that she had forgotten her baby at the terminal of the Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International Airport.

The woman realised that she had left her baby at the departure while she was waiting for the hall and she realised that only after the flight had taken off from the airport.

The weird incident ended on a happy note after the mother was reunited with her baby at the airport. The operator then asks the pilot about turning back to the airport.

In a video uploaded in YouTube, the pilot could be heard relaying information to the airport's air traffic control (ATC).

The operator asks another colleague about the protocol saying, "This flight is requesting to come back...a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing".

The operator clears the flight to return, exclaiming, "Ok, head back to the gate".

Eichel was assessed a minor penalty for the illegal check in the second period of the Sabres' 3-0 loss at Colorado on Saturday. In Eichel's absence, the Sabres have recalled forward Alex Nylander from their AHL affiliate in Rochester.

"Ok, head back to the gate".

Describing it as "a totally new one for us", air traffic control granted the flight permission to return.

The odd incident however ended on a happy note as the baby and mother were united at the airport.

Saudi Twitter user Fahad M. Al Barrak, who shared the original audio of the incident, said the baby had been left with its sister who boarded the wrong bus at the terminal.
