In the clip the pilot is heard asking air traffic control staff:
May God be with us. Can we come back or what?"After noting the flight number - SV832 - the operator asks a colleague what protocol they should follow, if one even exists.
The pilot then adds:
This flight is requesting to come back…a passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing,”The air traffic control asked the pilot to confirm the story, he replied:
We told you, a passenger left her baby in the terminal and refuses to continue the flight.”He then said:
Okay, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us!”The event is reported to have taken place on Saturday evening. However, the circumstances in which the mother left her baby is still unclear.
Fahad M. Al Barrak, who shared the original audio of the incident on Twitter claimed the mother hadn't simply left her baby at the terminal by itself.
