Boy leaves a stink on board flight

A family from China has been condemned for letting a boy under their care defecate on his seat on board a Delta Air Lines flight from Beijing to Detroit, reported China Press.

The boy, who was accompanied by his parents and grandparents, defecated on newspapers laid out on his seat.

Despite other passengers urging the family to take the boy to the toilet, the grandfather insisted that the boy be allowed to pass motion on the seat. A stewardess even spoke to the family but to no avail.

The incident sparked a furore among passengers and Chinese netizens, who took to the micro-blogging site Weibo to condemn the family.

They accused the family of being an embarrassment to the Chinese community.
