9 Year-Old Skips Through Airport Security, Flies To Vegas
"At this point, this is a Delta and TSA issue," said airport spokesperson Pat Hogan in a KARE11 tv report. "This is a rare incident." Rare it may be, but the boy made it on to Delta flight 1651 and was not discovered until the plane landed in Las Vegas.
Both Delta and the TSA are investigating the incident and the 9-year-old stowaway, also believed to be a runaway. Getting past the TSA security screening as well as Delta's gate agents and the flight crew on the aircraft was simply all in a day's work for the boy. MSP airport officials report that he also took someone's luggage off a carousel, ordered food at a restaurant before going through security and even asked his server to watch his luggage while he used the restroom. He never returned.
