In a case of how not to do your job, a flight attendant forgot she had a loaded gun in her handbag when she passed through security at Philadelphia International Airport, and a police officer then accidentally fired the weapon while trying to unload it.
Nobody was injured in Sunday's incident, at least not physically, but chances are some reputations were a bit bruised. Neither the flight attendant nor the officer has been identified.
The Philadelphia Inquirer said the flight attendant, who works for Republic Airlines, has a permit to carry the weapon and that she was cited only for taking the .38-caliber revolver through security. The police officer was temporarily taken off patrol duty.
"She will go back to training for handling weapons," police spokesman Lt. Ray Evers said, according to the Inquirer. "She will be off the streets for a period of time."
