Childs Slips Through Airport Security

Sponsored by:

The knives were a gift for his father. And somehow they made it through airport security and across the country.

A California woman says she was shocked when her third-grader arrived on a flight from Oklahoma and pulled out two knives from his backpack.

Both were in the nine-year-old´s Pokemon bag, which his mom says cleared a security checkpoint in Tulsa and was carried on a Continental Airlines plane.

One of the knives was a swing-open, three-inch serrated blade.

Wendy Staggs says “this is way more dangerous than a box cutter” like the ones terrorists used to hijack planes on

September eleventh.

She asks “what if a terrorist had planted this in a child´s bag and then watched him and used him to take over a plane?”
