When a mother notified an airline service member that she had left her newborn in the boarding area of the airport’s terminal, the plane was turned around.

The jet was on its way from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to Kuala Lampur, but was forced to return after the mother notified the pilot, according to Gulf News. After the plane completed a U-turn and landed at the airport, the mother could save her child.

Due to the peculiar situation, an internet video of the pilot requesting to return to the airport has gone viral. Operators can be heard being surprised by the request and unsure of what to do next.

God’s blessings are upon us, I pray. “This flight has requested a return…” the operator can be heard asking a colleague for confirmation. “A passenger’s child was left in the waiting room.”

When the pilot explains why he wants to return to the airport, they answer, “We warned you, a passenger abandoned her baby in the terminal and refused to continue the voyage.”
