Part of LaGuardia Cleared, Bag Found Harmless
The Port Authority says part of Terminal C at LaGuardia Airport was briefly evacuated as a precaution while law enforcement investigated a report of smoke coming from a bag.
Spokesman Joe Pentangelo said some ramp workers reported the issue shortly before noon Tuesday as Delta Flight 5208 to Richmond, Va., was preparing for departure.
Pentangelo said the bag was moved to a remote location, X-rayed and declared harmless.
