(Newser) – An Israeli couple leaving on a European vacation remembered to bring their 18 suitcases—but forgot their 3-year-old daughter at the airport, AP reports. The pair and their five kids were late for their flight and made a mad dash for the airport. They didn't relize the toddler was missing until they were told on the flight that she had been found at Ben-Gurion airport. She took the next plane to Paris.
