A couple in Egypt is going to spend some time in prison by trying to get their child across the border in a way that is simply unimaginable. The couple was trying to get the baby into the United Arab Emirates by putting the child into a suitcase and putting him through the x-ray machine with all the other luggage. They’d been told that they couldn’t enter the country because the child didn’t have a visa. This led to their extreme decision.
When they were told they would have to wait a few days to resolve the issue, the couple put the baby in their carry-on bag and tried to get through security. Luggage at the airport is typically scanned when people arrive into the country. That is when the x-ray worker spotted the baby.
“This machine is very dangerous for anyone, let alone a baby in a bag to pass through,” a police official said.
The couple has been charged with endangering the life of a child.
