9 Year Old Sneaks Onto a Plane
MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WKRC) -- With all the security in place at airports across the country, you'd think it would be tough to stow away on an airplane these days.
But a nine year old managed it aboard a Delta flight.
Delta Airlines and airport administrators are trying to figure out how a nine year old boy snuck past security and on to a plane. It happened at Minneapolis Saint Paul airport Thursday when he boarded a flight to Las Vegas.
Officers are not saying how, but the nine year old somehow got past security screeners and ticket agents to board the flight. The plane was in the air when the flight crew got suspicious. They handed him over to authorities when the plane landed in Vegas.
The Transportation Security Administration says he was screened along with other passengers to ensure he was not a threat.
