A couple forgot their five-year-old son sleeping in a taxi in their rush to catch a flight at the airport here last week. Reaching Dubai International Airport, the couple took their bags out of the taxi’s boot and moved into the departure hall in a hurry, without realising that their son was still in the car, a security official told Khaleej Times on Tuesday. Only at the boarding pass counter did they realise that their child was missing. The airport security police identified the taxi through the CCTV footage and tracked it down. The driver returned to the airport in two hours, with the boy still sleeping in the back seat, and handed him over to his father. — PTI
