4-Year-Old Girl Found Hidden in a Bag On Board Air France Flight

A four-year-old girl was reportedly smuggled by a woman who flew from Istanbul to Paris. According to Air France, the child who was travelling without a ticket, was discovered on board the flight on Monday night “hidden inside a bag”.

A source at Charles de Gaulle airport said the woman was a resident of France who was in the process of adopting the child who was from Haiti. The source said,

“She was apparently in the transit zone in Istanbul, and had crossed the customs checkpoint with the child, when she was prevented from boarding a flight with her.”

Subsequently, she reportedly decided to hide the child in a bag to get aboard another flight, after buying a new ticket. The source added,

“Once on board, she placed the child at her feet, under a blanket, but the girl needed to go to the toilet and was noticed by other passengers.”
