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.

All-clear given 

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.
