  1. I think if this happened at my airport the TSA agents would have sent him to the big machine that grinds up contraband.

  2. A lot folks just don't realize how fast kids can get away from parents in just a split second … I just hope she doesn't have to deal with the child protective services goons over this

  3. Just like toy story.

    I'm surprised the TSA Agents didnt shoot the child because they thought he was a "terrorist" poor kiddo. Hope he gets better. Seeing him crawl like that. Oof

  4. Parental irresponsibility just like the baby that fell from the cruise ship. Perhaps time to put waist leashes on kids?

  5. It's not the airport's problem if the mother was paying attention..she should know that 2 year olds are very curious of their surroundings

  6. too liberated parents who allow their children to freely roam around and experience ….
    then they have the nerve to sue TSA security. I bet these parents will sue them.

  7. And how distracted was the parents from their maybe cell phone. Be aware and pay attention to your children at all times. What has this world come to?

  8. That…was hysterical! Terrifying for the kid, sure, but that scramble was so cool! Way to go kid, the monster machine was built by Dr. Seuss. 👍

  9. I suppose the airport will be sued because it was the airport's fault that the parents were not paying attention to their two year old child.

  10. its like the toy story 2 scene, when they trying to look for the green suitcase.
    if it was me i would've loved it.

  11. He's going to get radiated from that machine, soon we will have a pint sized vigilante stopping crime with his luggage based powers.

  12. Ok because people in the comments apparently don't understand the real world… humans are naturally tolerant to radiation to a certain point. We are exposed to radiation on a daily basis in a very small amount so we have a good amount of natural immunity to it. The radiation that child received is probably the same amount they would get from walking through the x-ray screener in security and on the flight itself because being higher off the ground means there is less atmosphere protecting you, thus more radiation. The kid isn't going to die or mutate or develop cancer or something for Christ's sake. Second, many of you apparently never had a child or ever been a child at any point (or were a very boring child). Children wander off all the time. When I worked as a grocery bagger as a part time job back in high school about 13 years ago I remember constantly having to find parents were children who wandered off into the wrong isle when their parent's back was turned. It happens all the time and my mom could count many times that it happened to me and I'm sure many of you "perfect parents" had it happen to you or you did it when you were a kid but are just too chicken to admit it. There is only so much anyone can do to prevent stuff like this from happening and it's no one's fault it was just an ACCIDENT. Be thankful no one got hurt and the kid didn't get caught in one of the pinching points in the belt. Jesus people… get off your phones and computers and join the real world…

  13. Definitely a Puerto Rican kid, the moms think their kids are angels and let them do anything they want. Ey papi, get back to your mommma

  14. I hope the radiation from the X-ray screener machine didn’t add any future health complications to the child?

  15. hahahaha, Once in a lifetime trip… he tried so hard not to go into the machine 8D…….. I love it.

  16. I was at that airport last month on June 28th. THAT is a BIG airport. I missed my flight, because the place is so big (and because the flight to there had been delayed, but I got onto another flight shortly afterwards, and I got a credit from Delta Airlines, because I went from a first class bulkhead seat to A17, way in the back, with no dinner, etc., that I had paid for). Apparently, a lot of flights from other places will stopover in Atlanta, Georgia, where the passengers will get onto a bigger plane to fly across the country, or elsewhere, that is a greater distance (eg., I flew from Kentucky to Atlanta, Georgia, on a smaller plane, and then in Atlanta, I had to transfer to a larger plane. I had to walk, and walk, and walk (you get the idea), using the moving sidewalks part of the way (but I was traveling with my new German shepherd service dog, who I had flown back to Kentucky to get; I got her to go on and off of 3 of those moving sidewalks, but when we got to the jungle-themed moving sidewalk, Pinot, my dog, said, "NO WAY!! I'm not getting on THAT!!" So it was more walking, and walking, and walking. We were glad to, finally, get on a plane, and heading to San Francisco (I did not really care about not getting dinner; it was just an afterthought, after I got home, that I thought to call to ask about a refund for the difference in the cost of the seats, because the first flight was late getting there). I did not get a refund, but I got a credit, that I have a year to use. Therefore, Pinot and I are going to Disneyland. I called a Hilton Hotel in Anaheim, earlier today, to ask if they allow service dogs, and they do, so in a couple of months, off we'll be going, again. (She flies with me in the people part of the plane, right under my feet. That was why I had scheduled first class bulkhead, so that she would have more room, but it worked out okay … we had 3 seats to ourselves (because the plane was not full, and the flight attendant offered the person sitting next to us a seat behind us). (I had not flown anywhere, since I flew to Hawaii, a long time ago, to do an independent study course for college. Therefore, this flight experience was new for me, and for my dog, Pinot. That is why the "jabber-jabber" about our experience, and seeing them talking about Atlanta, being big, just set me in motion to talk about that.)

  17. Yeah and if something had happened to the boy wherein he got severely injured then a TSA employee or the Atlanta Airport or the TSA would have gotten sued for millions of dollars. If they boy had gotten injured what should have happened if anything was the Parent gets charged with endangering a minor and or the courts just say well accidents happen but we don't do that anymore its always someone else fault except the parent. It was the parent that decided to bring the child into this world and into the airport it should be the parent who is responsible to protect this child and in this case the parent should have been charged with something and if so then we need to also allow and condone parents having their kids on a leash. And if we do not allow parents to have kids on a leash then you do not hold the parent liable every OR the airport ever.

  18. And people still think leashes for children is a dumb idea. Yeah no sounds like the best idea for this reason alone. You can't tell me you're able to juggle your luggage, extra bag/purse, talk to the ticket person with a free hand to retrieve them and still be holding on to your rambunctious boy.
    And no helen, before you reply to me saying you can because you're super mom and your sweet little baby angel would never, I just want to say you aren't and it could very well happen to you.

  19. What a wonderful TSA agent. Bless you, sir. “At that moment, he became all of our child.” 🙏🏼💝

  20. I have seen parents stand by their child at luggage pickup while the child held his hand on the moving conveyor , bad parenting is everywhere . or maybe they want them to get hurt so they can get some cash ?

  21. best way to prevent this is for all parents learn to be real parents instead of letting their child loose to do as they please…See your local walmart for more examples of this.

  22. for those wondering about the child radiation trip, I did a little sleuthing… The machine in question is a CT Baggage scanner machine. Judging by that I looked up the dose given. There are no exact measurements without knowing exactly how long the child was in the beam or what model the machine is, but it can be estimated from this source (https://hps.org/publicinformation/ate/q12361.html) that the child probably received no more than 1.5 mSeV, or about half a mammogram. The machines you walk through ARE NOT X-RAY MACHINES , they are either metal detectors or (the big scanning ones) are near microwave scanners and do not have ionizing radiation risks. So the child is likely to be ok.
