A young boy on a Beijing to Detroit flight was apparently allowed to, how shall I say, go number two right there on his seat. His parents put down newspapers to catch the waste, but other passengers in the cabin could not escape the smell.

According to the report, other passengers complained but there was nothing the airline (Delta) could do about it. The boy’s grandfather apparently insisted that the boy finish his business at the seat instead of going into the restroom like the other passengers requested. There’s been no corroboration from Delta.
