Home Alone 12, errbody!
A crafty 9-year-old boy managed to get on a flight to Las Vegas by hopping on the Delta flight without his parents OR a boarding pass! Like, he wasn't even just at the wrong gate or anything: he actually went through all the security checkpoints without a ticket or ID, and got on the plane without being questioned even ONCE!!
This happened at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, who have to be pret-ty embarrassed right now!
It wasn't until the flight crew noticed he wasn't on their roster of unattended minors that they became suspicious! So they had the Las Vegas police department waiting for him when he arrived… essentially ruining was what going to be the most insane weekend getaway a 9-year-old boy ever had! Ha!
What did his parents have to say?
"hadn't seen much of him today."
Here's what authorities said:
"Obviously, the fact that the child's actions weren't detected until he was in flight is concerning. I don't know of another instance in my 13 years at the airport in which anything similar has happened."
Now all the airports in America are super afraid of kids!
Still, we can't help but think this kid was about to have a crazy Vegas experience had he pulled it off! Hangover 4??
All kidding aside, it was super dangerous and we're glad somebody noticed! Wow!
