Baggage Oops!

Heard this one and just had to share, this is one of those situations where you can't help but feel sorry for someone and at the same time it's hard to not laugh.

A 78 year-old woman checking in at Sweden's main airport has probably just had her worst airport experience ever.

The woman was preparing to fly from Stockholm's Arlanda airport to Germany on Tuesday.

But, unfortunately, she misunderstood some instructions while checking in and placed herself on the unmanned baggage belt, instead of her luggage!


Grandma was then whisked away down a baggage chute!!!!

She ended up at the baggage handling centre.

Luckily staff members were on hand to help her get up.

And, on a very good note, she suffered NO serious injuries and was even able to catch her flight to Germany.

Poor, old lady. We have a feeling she won't be flying anytime soon.

She definitely shouldn't be traveling alone!
