Airport cleaners tidying up an aircraft that had landed in Manila were shocked to find a new-born baby boy in a toilet’s rubbish bin today.
A search has now begun for the mother, who investigators are convinced gave birth in the toilet as the Gulf Air jet flew to the Philippines from Saudi Arabia.
‘She appears to have left the aircraft as soon as possible after the plane landed,’ said a police officer.
The clean-up team which boarded the plane found the baby as a new flight crew were making plans to fly the plane back to Bahrain.
