“A World of Warcraft aficionado travelling from Chicago to Canada earlier this month to hook up with fellow gamers sparked an airborne terror alert after accidently flushing his iPod down the toilet,” Lester Haines reports for The Register.
Haines reports, “A short report in the Ottawa Citizen states: ‘A suspicious package found in an aircraft washroom on a flight from Chicago on Tuesday afternoon brought out Ottawa police canine and bomb-disposal units. A member of the crew found the package about 4 p.m., The plane landed safely and was isolated away from the terminal. Passengers were taken off the plane and questioned by police while experts investigated the ‘package.'”
Haines reports, “The blow-by-blow, first-person account on a WoW forum is far more entertaining.”
After reading the whole first-person account, our main thought was poop, er… poor iPod.
