  • Published by Vedat
A 9-year-old boy slipped through security at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport in the US and flew on a Delta Air Lines plane to Las Vegas without a boarding pass.

las-vegas-slideIt was not immediately clear why the child sneaked onto a Delta Air Lines flight on Thursday, raising questions about airport and airline security.

The boy was screened at one of the airport’s checkpoints shortly after 10.30am local time on Thursday and got on the Delta Air Lines flight to Las Vegas 11.15am. during the flight and contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Hogan said. Officers took him into custody when the plane landed.

Neither the Transportation Security Administration nor Delta would comment beyond saying that the matter was under investigation.

The child, who is from Minneapolis, arrived on the light rail train that runs from the city’s downtown, took a bag from a luggage carousel, and brought it to a restaurant in the area before the security checkpoints.

“He ordered lunch and ate it and then he told the wait staff that he had to use the restroom,” Hogan said. “So he left the bag there, left the restaurant and never came back to pay.”

The bag was returned to its owner.
