Passengers on a Delta Airlines flight bound for Miami International Airport experienced a slight delay while a potential threat was investigated.
Flight 2057 was scheduled to leave New York City’s LaGuardia Airport around 7:50 PM Tuesday, but was delayed while authorities determined whether a threat made was credible.
"The police officer said something about a bomb threat and they weren't sure," passenger Lety Perez said. "They don't think it was something accurate but they still have to check the whole plane and everything.
After determining all was safe, the flight took off and arrived in Miami shortly after midnight, about an hour after its scheduled landing time.
Delta Airlines releases a statement, saying in part that "as a precautionary measure, a security sweep of the aircraft was conducted. No security issue was identified and the aircraft was cleared to return to service."
