A woman trying to board a JetBlue flight in New York City is accused of causing a a bomb scare at JFK Airport.The Daily News is reporting the woman, 44-year-old Rosalinda Baez, was trying to board a JetBlue plane but was stopped by an attendant because the jetway had closed.

In a complaint filed with the Brooklyn Supreme Court, prosecutors allege that Baez told the attendant her suitcase was on the plane and asked, ""What if I had a bomb in my bag?"

Baez, a Dell web consultant, says she asked: "Isn't it a security risk to let my bag travel without the passenger when there could be a bomb in the bag?"

Officials say the flight took off but was diverted.
