TV crew attempts to pass fake bomb through airport security
Authorities say at least seven people who claimed to be working for a TV network were arrested at a New Jersey airport after they tried to film themselves passing a fake explosive device through a security checkpoint.
Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says it happened at Newark Liberty International Airport on Thursday. She says some members of the group attempted to bring the fake explosive device in a carry-on bag, but it was detected by TSA officers and never made it past security.
Farbstein says the alleged TV crew members were arrested on multiple charges and face possible civil penalties by the TSA.
2 dogs save elderly Michigan woman from freezing outside
NORVELL TOWNSHIP, Mich.
Two insistent labradoodles are being credited with saving an elderly Michigan woman from freezing to death outside.
Lonnie and Susan Chester told the Jackson Citizen Patriot that their dogs, Adam and Eva, began acting strangely Sunday. The animals wanted to be let outside early in the morning, something they don’t normally do.
“[Adam] never tugged on my clothes before, so I was cautious about letting them out because I didn’t know if there was anything out there,” Lonnie Chester said.
Before she could fully open the door of their home in Norvell Township, the dogs bolted outside. They ran to a woman in her 80s who was freezing on the ground in only a nightgown.
“She looked up at me and said, ‘I’m so cold,’” Lonnie Chester said. “I have no idea how long she had been out there. She must have been terrified.”
He said he brought the woman inside, covered her in blankets and called police. The temperature at the time was about 9 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
The woman’s family arrived at the house shortly after rescue crews arrived. The family had been searching for the woman but had been unable to see her lying in the snow in the dark.
