It feels like a scene from Home Alone, where little Kevin's mum realized he was left behind after they boarded their plane, and it has happened in real life.

One poor mother had to ask a Saudi jet to turn around because her baby was still in the terminal, and not on the plane.

Audio has made its way to social media where the pilot is asking the air traffic controllers for permission to return to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, because, quote, "a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.”

The air traffic control is then heard asking the pilot to confirm the story, in which the pilot replied, quote, “We told you, a passenger left her baby in the terminal and refuses to continue the flight.”

It is believed that the incident took place Saturday evening just gone.

No one totally understands how she forgot her baby, but some reports have said that she was not alone and that it was her daughter who had the baby, and she had boarded the wrong bus at the terminal and missed the flight.
