Our EconomicTimes in india gave us this news today. A 23 year old child was left behind at the airport. The parents and grandparents were all travelling together and they were in a hurry to catch the plane.They were all in a hurry to board the plane .Grandad and dad were under the mistaken notions that the toddler was with dad [by g dad ] and with gdad[by dad] and they were in different seats. As a result the plane took off without the little one. The security guard caught the happy little one wandering near the gate and the parents were intimated. Have you missed your child when you went out anywhere even for a short while?

Thank you very much for your responses. They were my sentiments exactly. 2 year old child allowed on his own without some adult holding on to his hand !!!!!!!!!!!!!
