Reality TV Crew's Carry-On Luggage Prompts A Bomb Scare At LAX
The bomb squad was called to LAX on Sunday afternoon when the carry-on luggage of a reality TV crew frightened passengers on a flight bound for Redmond, Oregon.
Passengers on American Airlines flight 2593 were suspicious of wires sticking out from an overheard compartment in the cabin, and the flight crew alerted authorities around 12:45 p.m. A reality TV crew on board the flight told authorities that the bags contained film equipment, according to CBS 2.
The Los Angeles Police Department's bomb squad checked the bags and determined that it indeed was film equipment and not materials for blowing up the Purple Line below Beverly Hills High School. The flight, which was scheduled to take off at 10:20 a.m., was given clearance to take off at 2:40 p.m.
