Runaway Seven Year Old Boards Plane Without Ticket

In what sounds like the plot of Home Alone in reverse, a 7-year-old girl in Switzerland managed to take a train by herself to the Geneva Airport and sneak onto a plane before she was finally apprehended by authorities earlier this week. 

The girl reportedly gave her parents the slip at Geneva's central train station, then took a one-stop train ride to the airport. Once there, she managed to pass through security checks by "taking advantage of her small size," then got on a plane headed for France by "sneaking into a passage accessible only to a child of this size," the airport said in a statement. Adds airport spokesperson Bertrand Staempfli, "This should never have happened."
