Plane passengers evacuated after stranger loads luggage

Posted:

PHILADELPHIA (KWWL) -- More than 100 passengers and five crew members aboard US Airways flight 1070 to Bermuda were removed from the plane as it sat on the tarmac.

As well as all luggage that had been placed on the plane.

Philadelphia Police say initial reports indicate that a person lacking a security badge was helping load the plane.

A spokesman for the FBI says authorities swept the plane and luggage for explosives and the plane was finally cleared to leave late Thursday afternoon.

The suspicious person took off in a vehicle, and was never identified or located.
