And you thought flying coach was rough!
A woman was arrested when she arrived at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport on Monday after she tried to hide a child inside a carry-on bag!
The unidentified woman traveling from Istanbul was traveling with a Haitian girl between 2 and 4 years old — whom the woman was allegedly trying to adopt.
According to reports, the woman was in the transit zone in Istanbul and had crossed the customs checkpoint with the child, when the girl was prevented from boarding a flight with her.
Maternal instincts kicking in, the woman hid the girl in her carry-on and bought a new ticket for a different flight.
Once she was on board, the woman placed the child at her feet under a blanket — but the girl needed to go to the bathroom and was soon noticed by the other passengers!
The woman has been detained by police at the Paris airport, and the child is now under the care of French authorities.
Thankfully, the toddler is in good health. Officials are conducting an investigation, but prosecutors have thus far decided not to press charges.
