It was a close call yesterday at Philadelphia International Airport. But thanks to the crack team of TSA security being on their toes, what could have been a major tragedy was averted. Or was it? Action New reports that airport security took a young woman into custody around 1:45 p.m. after discovering that she was trying to board a plane with a large, 8-inch knife in her carry-on bag. Was she going to hijack the plane? Or go on a mid-air stabbing spree? No. Turns out she’s a culinary student. And after being questioned, her knife was confiscated, and she was permitted to board her flight. Looks like she won’t be showing off her newly honed knife skills to her folks while home on break. Nothing to see here. Please move along. [Action News]
Not cleared for take-off.
