Who knew a baby could cause such a fuss at the airport?

A baby who hadn’t been properly screened prompted authorities to shut down a section of a terminal at Newark Liberty International Airport for more than an hour Friday, Transportation Security Administration officials said. The “security breech” led to an evacuation of part of the terminal, flight delays and inconveniences for hundreds of passengers.

The incident happened around 1:15 p.m. at a checkpoint leading to some gates at Terminal C.

TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said a mother and baby went through a metal detector when the machine sounded an alarm, according to The Associated Press. The mother handed the child to the father, who had already been screened. The mother was cleared, but the baby hadn’t been properly screened. The parents and baby left the checkpoint and headed to their gate, Farbstein told the AP.
