REPORT: Busy airport closes entire terminal after sex toys mistaken for hand grenade
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Berlin’s Schönefeld Airport was partially closed on Wednesday after various sex toys were spotted on an X-ray machine by security personnel and mistaken for parts of a bomb.
CNN reports that the items’ owner, who was not present for his bag’s initial inspection, was summoned by airport staff over a loudspeaker and the airport’s D terminal was closed over the incident.
The article goes on to state the following:
Various sex toys, including a vibrator, were mistaken for “suspicious content in a luggage piece,” federal police told CNN.
The man was initially embarrassed by the predicament and was unwilling to explain the purpose of the devices for about an hour, CNN reported.
The closure happened just before 11:00 a.m. local time and occurred the same day as a separate security scare at an airport in Frankfurt, where a family tested positive for explosive residue, according to Reuters.
