tsaThe U.S. Transportation Security Administration said an 80-year-old woman had no idea there was a sword inside her cane until she tried to take it on a plane.

TSA regional spokesman Mark Howell said during a Thursday event at South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach International Airport that an 80-year-old woman recently attempted to bring her cane on a flight she was catching at the airport.

He said TSA agents put the cane through the X-ray machine and discovered that twisting and tugging on the handle revealed a hidden sword inside the cane.

Howell said the cane had been a gift from the woman’s son and she had carried it for years without knowing about its hidden weaponry.  More
