Vibrators that were mistaken for a bomb in a piece of luggage prompted the closure of a terminal at Berlin’s Schönefeld Airport on Tuesday. The partial closure is the third evacuation at a German airport in just 10 days, with two of them occurring yesterday.
Newsweek Airport security was conducting X-ray screening of luggage when they found “suspicious content in a luggage piece,” federal police in Berlin said, according to CNN. Employees were unable to figure out what the content in the bag was, which prompted an alert to be issued just before 11 a.m.
The airport’s D terminal was then shut down as authorities investigated the luggage and its content. “Due to police investigation concerning a piece of baggage, check-in at Terminal D is currently restricted,” the airport tweeted, according to The Independent.
Officials determined the luggage actually contained sex toys after an hour-long investigation, which involved a bomb squad.
The incident in Berlin happened the same day a security alert at Frankfurt Airport prompted massive flight delays and cancellations. Parts of the airport were forced to evacuate after a French family of four was accidentally allowed to pass security despite testing positive for explosives, the BBC reported.
Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 1 was partially evacuated for two hours, but the family was eventually found. Police said one of the family members had not completed their security checks. However, the family was later allowed to continue their trip.
Another security incident at Munich Airport on July 28 led to 300 flights being canceled.
