Part of NY LaGuardia cleared; bag found harmless

- Associated Press - Tuesday, February 4, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) - The Port Authority says part of Terminal C at LaGuardia Airport was briefly evacuated as a precaution while law enforcement investigated a report of smoke coming from a bag.

Spokesman Joe Pentangelo (pehn-TAN'-juh-loh) said some ramp workers reported the issue shortly before noon Tuesday as Delta Flight 5208 to Richmond, Va., was preparing for departure.

Pentangelo said the bag was moved to a remote location, X-rayed and declared harmless.
