A flight passenger forgot she left her baby in the terminal and only remembered after the flight had taken off.

The woman was travelling on Saudia Airlines flight SV832, en route to Kuala Lumpur. The plane then had to divert back to Jeddah's King Abdulaziz Airport after she remembered her baby.

The pilot had to request an emergency landing.

The conversation was captured in a Snapchat video taken by another passenger.

The captain, speaking to air traffic controllers, can be heard saying, "A passenger on board forgot her baby in the terminal and she refuses to continue the flight. Please confirm whether we can get back to the gate or what.”

An air traffic controller responds by saying, "Ok, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us!"
