Babies Don’t Belong In Overhead Bins

When traveling on a crowded airplaine, it’s a flight attendant’s duty to find storage for excess cargo … just as long as it’s not somebody’s kid. A Virgin Blue flight attendant was sacked for placing a 17-month-old baby in an overhead bin. The flight attendant claimed he was just playing peek-a-boo with baby Riley, but the child’s mother, Natalie Williamson, did not enjoy the game. Williamson cried hysterically after the flight attendant allegedly picked up Riley — who had been playing the game in the aisle with his father — and put him in the tiny compartment and closed the latch for a full 10 seconds on a flight from Fiji to Sydney. What a fun idea! Babies just love being enclosed in airtight spaces. Don’t you just want to get in some people’s heads and noodle around until you can understand what the HELL they were thinking? I smell an impending lawsuit. (Note: A few news sources claim the incident has led to an estrangement between Williamson and her husband.) [Herald Sun]
