A Russian airline is reportedly apologizing for an incident which left a 5-month-old child hospitalized with severe injuries.
The woman and her child had just landed in Surgut, Russia, when a male flight attendant offered to carry the baby down the steps of the plane and allow the mother to handle her bags. On the way down the stairs the baby girl came loose from her carrier, hitting her head on the steps of the plane and suffering a concussion and broken nose. She was rushed to the hospital. “We are very sorry. The accident truly did happen,” the airline stated in response to the incident. The flight attendant also tried to visit the mother and child in the hospital, but he was turned away.
