From Seattle Washington KIRO
A passenger will not face charges after prompting a flight to make an emergency landing Saturday at New York City’s LaGuardia Airport, according to
Update 12:20 p.m. EDT Oct. 10: In a statement obtained by the AP, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said “nothing
harmful was on the aircraft.”
A passenger on the flight, Valerie Falsetta
, told WCBS-TV that a woman sitting next to the passenger reported for suspicious
behavior “said he was acting weird the whole plane ride.”
“She got up to use the bathroom supposedly and told the pilot (that there was) suspicious stuff in his bag,” she said.
Eyewitness News spoke to a man who was on flight. He says the suspect was sitting about five or six rows behind him and heard a woman say, "Don't do
that, don't do that." Once the plane landed safely, passengers rushed to get off -- pushing each other down the slides. Some were bloodied.
"We landed really hard and then out of nowhere people were screaming in the back of the airplane," the passenger said. "Some guy apparently may have
had a bomb on him. It was a suspicion of a bomb and then everyone was just shoving and pushing, jumping out of the airplane. They launched a slide.
People were falling off the slide left and right. They were bleeding. It was crazy."
Something doesn't sound right here.

authorities determined there was no criminality.
Port Authority Police described it as a "misunderstanding."

all of the passengers made it safely off the aircraft, WNBC reported. The plane landed after passengers reported suspicious activity from someone on
board the flight, a Port Authority spokesperson told the television station.
3. NO charges filed after "According to Port Authority officials, passengers on Flight 4817 reported "suspicious behavior" from another passenger."
