The suspicious object was ultimately a PlayStation console in very poor condition
Upon further investigation, it turned out that it was actuallyan old PlayStation console in degraded condition due to age or damage, State Police said. “ The condition of the console caused anomalies in the image produced when it was X-rayed, which raised concern from screeners said a statement from the state police. It was therefore not a PS5, which will soon see its performance improved thanks to a new feature.
In total, it took nearly an hour for the police to solve the mystery around this suspicious object. As you can imagine, this alert led to a significant number of delays. We can therefore only advise you not to fly with your console if it is in poor condition. You can see in the video below all of the passengers leaving Terminal A following the alert.
