Unattended Bag At LAX Causes Evacuation Of Terminal 2 Departures, LAPD Bomb Squad Called In
An abandoned bag at LAX caused the Terminal 2 departures area to be cleared out as the LAPD bomb squad was called in to investigate on Monday. The bag has since been deemed safe.
The bag was discovered by an LAX K-9 at 12:20 p.m., according to Rob Pedregon, a public information officer for LAX airport police. It had been left "at the curb, in front of Terminal 2 upper level," he said.
LAPD's bomb squad was notified, the terminal was evacuated and the roadway leading into the terminal was closed.
Airport police were able to locate the bag's owner, but because standard procedure had been activated, experts still evaluated the bag, which was deemed safe.
Airlines will be making accommodations for individuals who were evacuated and may have been late for their flight as a result, said Pedregon.
With regards to the owners of the bag, he said, they "just inadvertently took off, and didn't realize that they had left it there."
