(ANSA) - Rome, July 25 - This time, the parents were left
home alone in Manchester after their 11-year-old son sneaked
onto a plane Tuesday to run away to Rome.
In a reversal of the hit Hollywood film Home Alone about a
boy left behind when his family takes a trip, Liam Corcoran
manged to get through airport security checks at Manchester
Airport and board a Jet2.com flight to Rome without an airline
ticket.
When his parents discovered the boy was missing, they
called police.
Liam, his freckled face topped with shaggy red hair, wore
his favourite Spider Man t-shirt, dress pants, and flip flops on
his feet as he mingled with a group of Italian-bound students at
the airport.
They provided him the cover he needed to sneak aboard the
Manchester-Rome flight.
Enroute, the boy became airsick, finally catching the
attention of a flight attendant who then asked to see his
ticket.
When Liam confessed that he was running away from home and
wanted to see Rome, the pilot contacted authorities at Rome's
Leonardo da Vinci airport, who greeted the boy when he landed.
Late Tuesday evening, he was flown back to his anxious
parents in Manchester.
Both Manchester airport staff and Jet2.com have launched
investigations into how Liam eluded their checks.
