Sex Toys Mistaken For Bomb At Berlin Airport
Employees at Berlin’s Schonefeld Airport were left abuzz on Tuesday after a passenger’s vibrator and other sex toys, were mistaken for a bomb, causing the terminal to be closed, CNN reports.
During a routine baggage check, workers discovered “suspicious content in a luggage piece” in one of the X-rays, German police said, according to CNN.
An alert about the scan was sent out before 11 a.m. local time, and police shut down the airport’s terminal D to investigate. The passenger was summoned over the airport speaker to explain what was in his luggage but was sheepish about what was in it, saying it contained “technical stuff,” police told the news station.
The bomb squad was called in and authorities eventually determined the bag contained sex toys. The terminal was reopened at noon.
