Little girl sent to wrong country in flight mix-up
A nine year old girl on her first flight alone thought she was heading to meet her father in Germany where they were to celebrate Christmas together. But airline SAS got her mixed up with another girl of a similar age and packed her off to Luxembourg instead.
The nine year old from Ystad was left at Kastrup airport on Friday morning where she was to be put on a flight to Hanover. A few hours later the girl's father rang wondering if she had not been able to get a seat on the plane.
When the father raised the alarm the girl was quickly traced to Luxembourg. She had been switched with the other girl who was supposed to be on her way from Helsinki to Luxembourg.
The father was flown to Luxembourg to meet his daughter, who was apparently quite calm about the whole mix-up.
"They were asking me questions in German," said the girl."
But that was no problem because I understand and can write German. Then I got some nice food. They were kind and I was never scared.
"The father is now demanding a full explanation from SAS, who have admitted responsibility for the mistake."
This should not happen. But somehow the papers have been mixed up. And of course it was hard for the children themselves to know which plane they were on," said Jens Langergaard, the press officer at SAS. Article here.

Gift-wrapped goat’s head found on porch
In what police believe was a holiday prank, a young woman unwrapped a gift box left on her porch last week to find a skinned goat's head.
The 18-year-old woman, whom police declined to identify, found the box wrapped in Christmas paper about 1:40 p.m. The woman found no blood on the box.
"We think it was a distasteful prank," Palos Heights Police Detective Adam Nagy said. "That's the thought we have right now."
The woman told police that the only rationale she could think of for the heartless gift was her eating habits, Nagy said. She told investigators she is a vegan, a vegetarian who avoids all animal products.
Even though the goat's head looks like the work of pranksters rather than mobsters, police are taking the investigation seriously, Nagy said, and were trying to lift fingerprints from the package.
Authorities said they did not know if any local farms were missing a goat.
The authorities are ‘taking this seriously?’ Yeah right. I’m sure they have their best men dedicated to this case. Are you kidding? Article here.
