X-Ray Reveals Baby In Carry-On Bag

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates, (UPI) — Authorities in the United Arab Emirates said a pair of Egyptian parents were arrested when an X-ray machine revealed their baby in their carry-on luggage.

Police said customs officers at Sharjah International Airport arrested the couple Saturday on a flight from Egypt when an X-ray machine revealed they were smuggling their 1-year-old baby in a carry-on bag, Gulf News reported Monday.

Officials said the baby boy did not have a visa, passport or any other official documents allowing him to travel to the UAE.

“When customs officials saw the baby inside the bag at the X-ray scanner, they were stunned,” a police official told Gulf News. “This machine is very dangerous for anyone, let alone a baby in a bag to pass through. A case will now be raised against the mother and father, they both have visas to come to the UAE, but they have put the life of their child at risk.”
