KL to S'pore Tigerair flight delayed after (prosthetic) finger found on board
The Tigerair stewardess was tidying up the aircraft when she spotted something unusual.
There was an object that looked like... a severed finger.
The crew alerted police, who sent their forensic unit to investigate, Malaysian paper The Sun Daily reported.
It turned out to be a prosthetic finger.
The jet had landed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 at about 4pm on Thursday (March 12) and staff was busy preparing it for the next scheduled flight to Singapore when she stumbled on the object.
The discovery caused a two-hour delay.
The flight resumed its journey at 6pm after police gave air crew the all-clear.
It is believed that a passenger on an earlier flight may have accidentally dropped the prosthetic finger.
A Tigerair spokesman confirmed the find to The Straits Times Online, adding that the flight landed safely in Singapore at 8.28pm that day.
