Staff at Ben Gurion Airport in Israel have found a four-year-old girl alone in a duty-free shop after her parents accidentally took a plane without her.
The parents boarded the flight to Paris with four of their five children.
The mother and father were sitting in different parts of the aircraft and did not realise their mistake until the captain informed them after take-off.
The girl was put on the next flight to Paris. The parents will be questioned when they return to Israel.
“It is usual that travellers in a rush forget their luggage but not a child. This never happens,” AFP news agency quoted a police official as saying.
I know I am judging based on 8 lines in the article, but good god, how the hell can you not realise that the child is not with you? I mean, they must have been in the boarding area together before boarding the plane, they must have boarded the plane together even if they are sitting in different areas of the plane. Man, some people are dumb.
