Passengers Evacuated in San Antonio After Bomb Threat

The passengers on the undisclosed jetliner were evacuated and the plane was taken to a safe zone where airport police and a canine unit found nothing following a search.


SAN ANTONIO -- About 100 passengers were evacuated from a plane headed for Dallas on Saturday after San Antonio International Airport received a bomb threat, authorities said.

The airport received several calls Saturday morning saying a bomb was in Terminal 1, airport spokesman David Hebert said. Around 10:30 a.m., a caller referred specifically to the Dallas-bound flight. The name of the airline was not released. The passengers were evacuated and the plane was taken to a safe zone where airport police and a canine unit found nothing following a search, Hebert said. The passengers were allowed to board again after a two-hour wait. The FBI is investigating, he said.

The bomb threat was one of three made late Friday and early Saturday in San Antonio. None of the threats proved dangerous.
