via IW: It’s not the kind of “toy story” a Pennsylvania family had hoped for.
They say TSA officials sent their five-year-old son’s Buzz Lightyear toy to “infinity and beyond.”
CBS Philadelphia reports that the Zilka family was returning home from a trip to Disney World, where the boy’s uncle bought him a Buzz Lightyear “flip grip.”
However, security officials at Fort Lauderdale airport said it looked too much like a gun.
“Once he realized what was happening and they weren’t giving his toy back, he immediately starts bawling, just tears streaming down his face. It was all I could do to not to break down with him in that moment,” the boy’s father said.
The agents said the toy could be checked, but the family only packed carry-on luggage.
The boy’s father filed a complaint with the TSA.
