An Indonesian Garuda passenger airline flight en route from Jakarta in Indonesia to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia was diverted to the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) this evening after a three-year-old child was injured while he was playing inside the plane, airport officials said.
The child was admitted to a private hospital in Negombo soon after the plane landed.
“The Boeing-777 flight with 350 passengers and 14 crew members on board was scheduled to leave soon after treating the injured child,” the official said. (T.K.G. Kapila and Deepa Adikari)

What a great Airline. In Sri Lanka even the buses or the railway do not stop when a commuter is in heed of help. Specially the railway, even when passenger falls off the speeding trains the emergency breaks do not work and the guard disregards the incident.
