Passengers at Boston’s Logan Iinternational Airport was evacuated from a terminal Saturday and the local bomb squad called in after TSA agents found a “suspicious object” inside a Delta passenger bag that turned out to be a “PlayStation.”

As Bakken report, agents sounded the alarm after discovering a PlayStation – it’s unclear which specific – in “crashed mode”. Not in the first place to recognize the unit for what it was, the bomb squad was called “just after noon. 16 local time ”, while each passenger from Terminal A was evacuated for safety reasons.

Here is a video of the ongoing evacuation taken from someone there at the time. Local news station WCVB other than that reports it given the reason of the evacuation, some passengers were even removed from planes sitting on the asphalt, while others “ran screaming out ”.

It told Dave Procopio, a spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police BakkenThe condition of the console caused abnormalities in the image that was produced when it was x-rayed, which gave the screens concern. During the investigation of the object and secondary sweeps of the area, passengers in Terminal A were evacuated. “

That statement, he says the condition of the console caused abnormalities in the image produced when it was x-rayed “, This certainly suggests that the TSA agent may be forgiven not to recognize the console if its condition was so fucked that it did not even x-ray properly. I imagine a PS3 where much of the plastic case is smashed and removed, leaving raw heat sinks and boards bare like the face of a T-800 at the end of one Terminator movie.

The bomb squad gavee “quite clear” in the terminal about an hour later, after checking out the console and making “secondary sweeps”, so no matter how awful the PlayStation mode was in, its owner can at least sleep soundly, knowing it is not by to be immediate explode.
