A baby girl has been discovered stuffed in a hand luggage bag on an Air France flight from Istanbul to Paris.
A fellow passenger made the shock discovery on Monday night, when they saw a woman’s carry-on bag moving around by itself.
The passenger then alerted the cabin crew who opened the bag and discovered a baby inside.
The woman was met by French authorities and taken into custody as soon as the plane landed, however no charges have yet been laid.
It is believed the toddler is between one and two years old, appeared in good health and an Air France spokesman said that the child was “travelling without a ticket”.
It’s believed the woman may have been in the process of adopting the child.
An Air France spokesman said: “An investigation is under way. I can only say that the security checks are the responsibility of airports, in this case, Istanbul Ataturk.”
French authorities met the woman and child at the airport.
