Have you ever wondered what happens to that piece of luggage that just sits there on the baggage belt with no one there to claim it?
Well, apparently, if you do not come and collect your luggage, the airport might just decide to throw it into a dumpster truck, with all of your belongings with it.
This video was shot on May 24 by a passenger sitting in an airplane on the tarmac at Christchurch International Airport, in New Zealand.
The video clearly shows a baggage handler throwing multiple bags (some of them still have the bag tags attached) into a dumpster truck, right in front of 300 passengers.
Apparently, the airport has publicly announced that the bags were not in fact uncollected luggage, but rather donated luggage that they used to test their system with, and that they no longer had any use for.
The video has already been seen over 35,000 times already.
The next time the airport loses your luggage, you might want to keep this in mind.
