Woman fakes pregnancy to skip Expo queue

Ecuador pavilion staff uncovered the ruse

(ANSA) - Milan, October 21 - A 50-year-old Italian woman used a pillow to fake pregnancy in order to skip the long queues at Expo pavilions, ANSA sources said Wednesday.
    The woman was visiting Expo with her 10-year-old and 12-year-old daughters. Her trick was discovered by staff at the Ecuador pavilion, who didn't confront her at the entrance but once inside asked her about the misplaced pillow.
    The woman pretended nothing was wrong, despite the pillow having shifted underneath her jacket.
    Expo volunteers spoke with other pavilion staff members who confirmed that the woman had used the same trick to gain entrance to other pavilions throughout the day.
