U.A.E - People have tried to smuggle some pretty outrageous things through airport security over the years. But what this couple is accused of trying to sneak through an airport scanner may be the most outrageous of all.
A mother and father are accused of putting their baby inside a carry-on bag.
The baby boy was discovered by an X-ray scanner at an airport in the United Arab Emirates on Saturday.
Police say the couple didn't have a visa for the boy to enter the U-A-E so tried to sneak the five-month-old in by putting him in a small handbag.
The parents are charged with putting their child at risk and attempted smuggling.
Police say the boy is doing fine.
