Saudi Airlines

In the age of the internet we all love bizarre incidents, but this one is probably as bizarre as it can get.

The story goes something like this – the plane takes off from Jeddah and heads towards Kuala Lumpur but after a few minutes after takeoff the pilot started requesting the air traffic control operators that he’d like to return back.

According to Gulf News, the pilot requested to return back to the airport because a woman on his flight forgot her baby at the airport in Jeddah.

A video of the pilot’s request started to make rounds online, watch it for yourself here.

Even the air traffic controller was asking the pilot to reconfirm the incident as he seemed to be baffled by the story as well.
