A sneaky holidaymaker skipped more than two hours of queues at a Turkish airport by pretending he was injured and needed a wheelchair.
Wolf Jenkins, a 28-year-old student, pretended to have sprained his ankle at Milas-Bodrum airport on June 16, limping and walking around with his sock and shoe off on June 16.
He decided to feign injury as he feared he would miss his flight because of huge queues.
When staff asked Wolf if he had a fit to fly form he told them that he had sprained his ankle on the way to the airport and could walk if needed.
But flight attendants said not to worry and pushed him around the airport in a wheelchair and took him to his seat on the plane.
The 28-year-old and his friend were then given rows to themselves on the plane so that Wolf could stretch his leg out.
Wolf filmed his sneaky plan from limping around the airport to jumping off the wheelchair in the UK.

In the clip, 28-year-old is seen grinning from ear to ear as he is pushed past the huge queues by airport workers, helping him to reach his flight in plenty of time.
He is then seen being wheeled along the connecting tunnel and onto the plane before sprawling out over three seats.
Then, he smiled as he came out the wheelchair and walked away from the airport and headed back home.
The 28-year-old shared the now-viral video which has racked up more than 1 million views and 99,000 likes to TikTok last Tuesday and wrote: ‘Amazing what taking one sock off can achieve.’

But some users criticised the trick.
One mum said: ‘Imagine pretending to need a wheelchair.
‘My son actually needs a wheelchair and it’s not something anybody should be pretending about.’
Another added: ‘For everyone saying it’s good I’m a wheelchair user and it’s humiliating being pushed up the aisle of a plane when people are seated.
‘Even though I see the funny side.’
But some users criticised the trick. One unamused mother said her son needed to use a wheelchair and it is not something people should pretend about
Wolf said: ‘I flew from Bodrum to Bristol at midnight. When we arrived at the airport the queue was out of the door and we knew we would have missed our flight.
‘I’d say around a two hour wait to get through security and check in at least. The queue outside of the airport was insane, I didn’t expect it at all.
‘I saw people in wheelchairs being pushed through so my friend waited in the queue and I went outside and took off my shoe and sock.
‘I then limped back towards the door and a member of staff asked me if I needed assistance so I said I had twisted my ankle at the hotel just before getting into my taxi.
‘I was then ushered through security and to check in immediately and they asked me if I had a fit to fly form but I said I have only just done it and that I could walk if necessary.
‘But they said not to worry about it and let me through.
‘We were originally in separate parts of the plane but they gave us a whole row of six seats to sit with each other and the staff were the same as who had been on the flight out there so they remembered us and were extremely friendly.
‘It was all just a way to get through and make sure we didn’t miss our flight.’
