Apparently, the baby was even sleeping soundly inside the mother’s backpack when airport officers found the two-month-old infant.

The report says that officials identified the sneaky mom as Jenifer Pavolaurea, a 25-year-old Papua New Guinea national.

After being initially questioned for being an overstaying alien by immigration officers, Jenifer admitted that she tried to smuggle her baby into her flight because she didn’t have the necessary immigration clearance for her baby to be allowed to fly, according to the report.

The report also says that immigration officers did not file chargers against her, and was eventually allowed to fly back to Papua New Guinea.

It’s crazy how there are people trying to pull off crazy stunts at the airport!

What do you think of this? Would you ever try to sneak into luggage on a flight??
