WATCH: Baggage handler tosses bags at Canadian airport

2014-04-22 12:36
Toronto - Well, it seems like even Canada, the most polite nation in the world, is home to careless baggage handlers. 

Brisbane Times reports that Passengers on an Air Canada flight had their worst fears about the treatment of luggage confirmed last week when they witnessed a baggage handler carelessly tossing their bags from a seven-meter height into a metal container.

Many had been forced to check in valuables and electronics due to a large number of bags on the flight, which made the spectacle, caught on camera by another passenger, even more horrifying.

Dwayne Stewart was watching the incident from his plane window at Toronto's Pearson International Airport while waiting for his flight to Vancouver to push back from the gate.

He grabbed his smartphone to film the careless baggage handlers responsible and posted the video on YouTube.
