THIS is what makes a bad parent
Parents Put Baby in Baggage to Sneak Through Customs
Yes, international flight regulations can require all sorts of documentation, but trying to skirt the rules by sticking your baby in a carry-on bag? That's a new travel kind of nightmare. CNN reports an Egyptian couple with a 5-month-old son arrived at Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates, but they were not allowed entry into the country because the child didn't have a visa.
Apparently unwilling to wait two days for the visa office to open, the parents put the infant in their luggage, which was discovered when the bag went through an x-ray screening, according to the network. CNN notes that the boy is in good condition, but Abdel Rahman Shama, a police officer, tells the network they were very surprised by the parents' actions. "This is the first time we have seen something like this," he tells the network. "Even if you are in a desperate situation, how can you put your child in a bag?"
