CCTV is an extremely handy technological development; partly because it helps us detect crimes and enhance security, and partly because it captures comical moments from across the globe – that may otherwise only be enjoyed by a select few – and enables us all to enjoy them forever more.
Which brings us to this woman, who had a bit of a whoopsie at Istanbul Airport.
In the footage, the woman can be seen walking up the baggage ramp at check-in with her luggage in her hands. She then waits patiently for a bag to pass – clearly not thinking anything of the fact it is bags riding the belt, not people – before stepping on to the luggage conveyor belt and falling in a heap.
As the woman is whisked along on her behind towards the baggage handlers out the back, bemused staff members press the emergency stop button, seemingly unsure what to say to the fallen passenger.
Unfortunately, we know nothing more of this woman and her thought process. Had she never flown before and assumed this was what you were supposed to do? Did she not have a ticket and think she could chance getting free travel in the baggage hold? Or had she spent the whole morning waiting for her flight at the airport pub and ended up a tad confused?
