A passenger waiting for a flight at Pucallpa Airport in the east Peruvian department of Ucayali filmed these baggage handlers unzipping and rifling through a passenger’s luggage as they got ready to transport it.
Ruben Sanchez, who took the video, shared the footage on Facebook, sparking outrage at the audacity and dishonesty of the workers.
LAN, the South American airline whose passenger was victim to the intrusion, said the men have been identified – they work for companies contracted to provide services for the airport.
“The men are being detained and we will be pressing charges so that the authorities may take appropriate action,” said a representative for LAN.
According to the Daily Mail, the men have reportedly apologised and plan to make things right with the victim.
