Unattended camera causes Newark flight to divert
BOSTON -- Massachusetts state police say an unclaimed camera that led the crew of a United Airlines international flight to divert to Boston has been X-rayed and found to be safe.
State police spokesman David Procopio said at about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday that the passengers were taken off the plane during an inspection by bomb technicians at a remote area of Logan International Airport. He said the flight was resuming.
United spokesman Rahsaan Johnson said the crew decided to divert Flight 956, en route from Newark, N.J., to Geneva, Switzerland, after flight attendants found the camera in an unoccupied seat. Johnson said the Boeing 767 has 157 passengers and 11 crew members.
The Transportation Security Administration said the plane was diverted "out of an abundance of caution" and its officers also responded.
