The father of the 9-year-old boy who stowed away on a flight to Las Vegas is now speaking out, as his son is reportedly on his way back to Minnesota. The father did not want his name or face revealed, because his son is a minor, and according to a CNN source, the boy was being returned “because the jurisdiction where the boy is from is where issues will be addressed.”
Authorities are investigating how a 9-year-old Minneapolis boy flew to Vegas by himself without a boarding pass. The incident happened last Thursday at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
A 9-year-old Minneapolis boy was able to get through security and onto a plane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport without a ticket, an airport spokesman said Sunday. Security officials screened the boy at airport shortly after 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said. The boy then boarded Delta Flight 1651, which left for Las Vegas at 11:15 a.m. The flight was not full, Hogan said, and the flight crew became suspicious midflight because the boy was not on their list of unattended minors. The crew contacted Las Vegas police, who met them upon landing and transferred the boy to child protection services, Hogan said.
