Parents left kids at airport after one child denied boarding due to fever
HONG KONG — A Chinese family of four was stopped by immigration on January 23rd upon noticing that the young son was having a fever and so was denied boarding.
But instead of canceling their trip altogether so they can be together as a family, the parents left their children at the airport and they took off, said the report from Oriental Daily News, a Chinese-language newspaper in Hong Kong.
Netizens said they saw what happened, commenting that the family was supposed to fly to Changsha from Nanjing Lukou International Airport. The parents created a scene as they tried to persuade the airline to let their son fly with them.
Another netizen said the fuss caused a delay for everyone boarding the same flight for three hours.
Eventually, the issue was only resolved when the parents unexpectedly abandoned their two young children, a boy and a girl at the airport.
The mom and dad boarded the plane, leaving the little ones behind. Airport staff didn’t have a choice but to take care of the abandoned kids.
Note: The coronavirus has put a serious dampener on proceedings at major airports. Passengers are strictly being scanned by health control officials and are stopping anyone sick from boarding the plane so that the infection doesn’t spread further.
