How the hell did they think they were going to get away with putting him through the X-ray machine though?
An Egyptian couple stuffed their baby in a carry-on bag and tried to sneak him into the United Arab Emirates, but were busted after they put the bag through the X-ray machine, according to reports.
A report on GulfNews.com said the man, his wife and their newborn son arrived at Sharjah International Airport on Saturday morning but were told they couldn’t enter the country because the boy didn’t have a visa.
Customs officials told the pair they’d have to wait until Sunday to sort out the matter, the reports said.
Instead, the couple zipped the boy inside a carry-on bag and tried to sneak him through security.
Luggage at UAE airports is usually scanned on arrival, after passengers have their passports stamped, according to The Associated Press.
An X-ray worker spotted the baby in the bag, and the couple was arrested.
A source told Gulf News that cops were stunned the couple put their baby through the machine.
“This machine is very dangerous for anyone, let alone a baby in a bag to pass through,” a police official said.
The man was said to be in his 30s, but the couple wasn’t identified.
They were charged with endangering the life of the child and infiltration, according to Sun News.
