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
