A passenger boarding a flight at Newark Liberty International Airport accidentally brought a hunting knife through a TSA security checkpoint without it being noticed, MyFoxNY reported. The passenger handed it over to security before boarding the plane. NJ.com community members are reacting to the news.
From mb1983:
“It happens all the time. I accidentally had my fishing knife in my carry on 4 years ago. I showed customs that it was in the bag there and back. I had absolutely no idea it was in there in a pouch behind a pouch all the way in the bottom. I realized it was there when I arrived back in Newark when I was searching through my bag. I told officers and showed them the knife and I explained it to them that it was an accident. They just told me to have a good day and I left. No questions asked.”
