Kayakers breach secure area at Kennedy Airport

Two kayakers who had overturned in Jamaica Bay made their way to a secure area of Kennedy Airport Saturday morning, Port Authority officials confirm.

The men ended up at the end of a pier that juts out into the bay from the end of Runway 4L. The pier supports navigation equipment meant to help planes take off and land.

The men were spotted by maintenance workers at about 1:30 a.m.

Officials say the two men were cited for trespassing.
