It is any parent’s nightmare.
Maribel Martinez of New York had arranged for her 5-year-old son, Andy, to fly home unaccompanied on JetBlue from the Dominican Republic on Aug. 17. But when she went to pick him up at Kennedy International Airport, she got the shock of her life.
Airline employees presented her with a boy who was clutching Andy’s passport and luggage. But he was not her child.
“Is this your son?” Ms. Martinez said she was asked, according to news reports on Thursday.
She replied, “No, this is not my child.”
