Nobody likes being stuck on a flight with a crying baby but that’s certainly no reason to, I don’t know, chuck one in a garbage bag and put him in the cargo hold.
Sun.Star reports that airport authorities found a newborn baby among the cargo in an airplane from the Middle East.
A security officer noticed something moving in a garbage bag that was reportedly unloaded from a Gulf Air plane that arrived from Bahrain and found the baby inside, an airport statement said. The baby was later turned over to social workers posted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
The baby is okay for now. Department of Social Welfare and Development employees cleaned him up and gave him milk. The DSWD is now looking for his mother to arrange a reunion, and possibly to arrest her delinquent ass.
“I was simply outraged, no infant should be treated that way,” DSWD Secretary Corazon Soliman said. I mean, passengers are give headphones so they can watch their in-flight movies in peace now.
