Berlin: Authorities at Berlin’s Schonefeld Airport on Tuesday grounded flights and evacuated a terminal after a suspicious looking device was found during baggage screening.
To their amusement, the object turned out to be a vibrator!
According to RT, the owner of the sex toy wrote on social media: “When I arrived, the terminal was being evacuated. I approached a police officer and told him that I needed to check my bag with the baggage handlers.” The passenger said the officer asked his name and for his passport.
“He then spoke into his radio and several armed police swarmed me with automatic weapons,” the passenger said. The man, whose identity was not disclosed in the report, said he was taken to another area, where members of a bomb squad in full protective gear inspected the object. “After 60 tense minutes, [the member of the bomb squad] returned laughing.
The hand grenade was in fact a vibrator from Ann Summers that my girlfriend and I had purchased two weeks previous,” the passenger said. The ‘explosive’ situation was defused but that was no consolation for the passenger, who was left red-faced and also ended up missing his flight.
