TSA Officers At LaGuardia Airport Buy Shirt For Boy

October 18, 2018 - 9:46 am

NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) -- Transportation Security Administration officers at LaGuardia Airport bought a shirt for a shirtless boy who was traveling to Denver.
The TSA says the boy and his father arrived at a checkpoint Wednesday and officers noticed the child did not have a shirt when he removed his coat for screening. The father told officers all their clothes were in a checked bag and he didn't realize his son wasn't wearing a shirt.

Officers were concerned because temperatures in Denver were cold so two of them went to an airport shop and purchased an NYPD T-shirt.
An officer escorted them to their gate for their flight.
