Flight Forced To Turn Back After Mum Forgets Baby At Airport

Flights are cleared to return to airports when there is a major emergency and something happens to force the pilot to turn around.

But to return because a mother on the flight forgot her baby on the ground is strange.

The bizarre incident happened over the weekend when a Saudia plane returned to the airport after taking off as a passenger on board had forgotten her baby at the airport.

Flight SV832, from Jeddah to Kuala Lampur, turned back after the Saudi mother told cabin crew that she had forgotten her baby in the boarding area at the terminal of the King Abdul Aziz International Airport.

A video went viral on social media showing the pilot requesting permission to head back to the airport, while talking to ATC operators – who were caught by surprise and were scampering around to figure out the protocol to be observed for such an incident.

“May God be with us. Can we come back or what?” the pilot was heard talking to air traffic controller.

The operator, after taking the flight number, is heard asking another colleague about the protocol.

“This flight is requesting to come back…a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.”

The operator then asks the pilot to re-confirm the reason for turning back.

The pilot was overhead speaking: “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!”

In the video comments, the pilot was given loads of applause for his “humanity” — on agreeing to return to the airport after takeoff and considering the situation as an “emergency case”.

STATEMENT ON UGANDA-RWANDA RELATIONS

Monday, 4 March, 2019

Fellow Citizens and our East African Brothers and Sisters:

Following a briefing with my team of experts on international law, diplomacy and related matters, we have drawn some conclusions regarding the current strain in relations between Uganda and our neighbour, Rwanda, and hereby advise as follows:

Over and above bilateral ties, Uganda and Rwanda are state parties to regional instruments and international protocols on trade and other forms of regional/international cooperation.

These include the East African Common Market Protocol, the Constitutive Act of the African Union, the United Nations Charter, the Geneva Conventions and Additional Protocols thereto.

These instruments are backed by institutions and implementing mechanisms such as the East African Community Council of Ministers, the Summit, Court of Justice and farther afield, the General Assembly and Security Council of the United Nations, to name a few.

Suffice to say that the prevailing International Humanitarian Law regime goes ahead to restrain countries from armed confrontation and encourages peaceful resolution of disagreements.

Besides avoiding armed conflict, relying on these bodies will also help us grow a culture of working through institutions and insulate us against the ever-present dangers of personality cults. This way, we build our profiles among the global community of states.

We hereby urge the principle actors in this state-of-affairs to stick to the diplomatic path for the benefit of the citizens of either country and the broader peace and prosperity of the Great Lakes Region and our continent Africa.

Too many lives and livelihoods have been needlessly lost in previous flare-ups of war between our two countries.

Estimates indicate that the business community—which is a crucial component of our development as an economic bloc—is bearing the brunt of this impasse and has so far incurred combined losses upwards of fifteen million dollars in the past several days.

Cross-border retail sales, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, manufacturing and processing industries have suffered alike. This will likely curtail our opportunities of registering a trade surplus as a Community this financial year.

As leaders, we should always bear in mind the fact that we have not inherited our respective countries from our forefathers but rather, borrowed them from future generations whom we owe a duty of care to ensure that we leave them a better world than we found.

Our actions and statements have implications for millions of lives and so restraint should be a priority.

As Ugandans and Rwandans, there is a lot more that unites us than what divides us. Over the years, we have invested colossal amounts of resources into the regional integration process and the current tensions only serve to undermine and erode the economic and geopolitical gains made in the quest for integration.

Let us all give diplomacy a chance, de-escalate tensions and forge a lasting peace.

For God and My Country.
