Seems like a major thing to forget.
A Saudia Airlines plane that was mid-route to Kuala Lumpur was forced to turn around when a frantic mother approached the cockpit and said she realized she’d left her infant in the waiting area back at the airport, according to The Gulf News.
“May God be with us. Can we come back or what?” said the pilot to the air traffic controller.
The ATC gets the number of the flight and then asks a colleague how to handle this.
“This flight is requesting to come back … a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing,” he says.

Unattended bag at an airport: bring out security, bomb sniffing dogs, lock down the terminal
Unattended baby at an airport: meh

The ATC and colleague were heard asking the pilot to reconfirm his reason for coming back:
“We told you, a passenger left her baby in the terminal and refuses to continue the flight.”
“Ok, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us!”

Flight SV832 made it successfully back to Jeddah, and reportedly, the woman was able to get her child on the plane.
But the question remains: how on earth?
The poor woman was excited about her vacation and now the whole world talking about her.

Earlier last week, in other dumb news, a woman was mauled by a jaguar when she attempted to climb over the barrier to take a selfie with it.
Maybe all this weird dumb stuff is happening because it’s Mercury’s in retrograde. That would explain a lot.
