Luggage Lost? What About Your Child?

File this one into the parental nightmare category. A gentleman named Greg Henry put his seven-year old son on a flight with the expectation that the child would be looked after by the airline. But why would we trust anyone with our children who can’t even take care of our suitcase? Herr Henry is probably asking himself that question after the child was apparently “lost” at the airport. The airline actually put a tag on the child identifying him as an unaccompanied minor, but that didn’t seem to matter. Now, never mind the questionable judgment of a parent who would send his seven year old on a flight alone, we do have to wonder what the airline did here to “lose” the child. Of course, all turned out well with the kid. He lived and all. But one wonders if there might be a better system available to account for traveling kids.
