BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The manager of the Bismarck airport and federal officials say they’re investigating the report of a man who says he was allowed to board a plane to Denver with someone else’s ticket.

Mick Turner, of Bismarck, tells KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/1nhRitT) that he received the wrong boarding pass when he checked in for the July 10 flight, and then made it past the security checkpoint and onto the plane.

Turner says he didn’t realize he had the wrong boarding pass until he got to his seat. He told a flight attendant about the mistake and was asked to leave the plane.

Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lorie Dankers says TSA is reviewing the allegations. Airport manager Greg Haug calls the incident a “legitimate concern.”
