PDX Airport Concourse Closed After SCREENING FAILURE

One of the main, busy concourses at Portland International Airport was closed briefly Saturday morning when two airline passengers, a mother and her daughter, got through a checkpoint before they were fully screened by security workers.

Port of Portland spokesman Steve Johnson called the security breach inadvertant, saying the mother and daughter slipped away and were briefly out of sight of the airport screeners.

Transportation Security Administration workers agreed that it was just a mistake by the pair and not an attempt to avoid the full screening.
