US woman caught red-handed attempting to smuggle a newborn baby in Philippines

An American woman was allegedly caught trying to smuggle a newborn baby boy out of the Philippines by concealing him in her carry-on luggage.

Jennifer Talbot, 43, from Ohio, had checked in for a flight to the US when airport officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila found the undocumented baby inside ‘an oversized belt bag’ around her waist.

She tried to get through airport security and immigration checks but police pounced as she sat in the departure area this morning.

Talbot is now being questioned by police while they check the identity of the infant and how she came to have him.

Bureau of Immigration deputy spokesperson Melvin Mabulac said the baby boy, believed to be a six-day-old Filipino, does not have proper documents or a plane ticket.

He said staff from Delta Airlines alerted airport police when Talbot had checked in.

Talbot was held by the Bureau of Immigration and later turned over to the National Bureau of Investigation for questioning.

The undocumented baby was taken to the Department of Social Welfare and Development while investigations are on-going.

Immigration chief Melvin Mabulac said: ‘American citizen was supposed to leave the country for the United States when airport officers at Naia Terminal 3 discovered the undocumented infant in her bag around 6:20 a.m.’
