9-year-old boy sneaks onto plane to Vegas

The Transportation Security Administration is considering changes at one of the Midwest's busiest airports after a 9-year-old boy was able to sneak past several layers of security and board a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas without a ticket.

And that trip is now raising serious questions about security at America's airports.

George Howell has an OutFront investigation.

    Wow. I am an old guy who hates this screening process. I want to know how this young fellow did it. Don't you have a ticket and ID to get through the first checkpoint? Then you have to twirl around for the new phone booth body scanner after removing your shoes, your glasses, you belt and taking everything out of your pockets. Then you limp to recover your stuff while holding up your pants. After redressing and catching your breath you can now proceed to the gate where you line up and wait to board the plane. They take your ticket and then you board. The 9 year old didn't have a ticket? He must be one crafty little fellow. I am sure there is already a movie in the making.
