a Belgian couple leaves their baby at check-in, for lack of a ticket
The couple, late for their plane and without a ticket for their child, would have tried to board without him … before being caught by airport staff.
It’s a tall tale. Tuesday, January 31, a couple, with Belgian passports, was to board a Ben Gurion-Brussels flight. Late for their flight and without a ticket for their baby, the parents would have been blocked at check-in. But instead of finding a solution, they would have simply abandoned their little boy on the counter of the company, reports TF1citing the Israeli media Times of Israel.
On a video shared by an agency, we actually see the cozy placed on the counter, the baby hidden under a small beige blanket.
Airport personnel intercepted the couple to collect the child. The police then came to question them. Ryanair, in a statement, said employees were in shock. “We’ve never seen anything like it“, writes the company. The case is now in the hands of the police.
