Shocking video shows unattended security checkpoint at JFK Airport

JAMAICA, Queens (WABC) -- Surveillance shows a shocking security breach at Kennedy Airport earlier this year.

The video from February shows a TSA metal detector that was left unattended. Eleven passengers walked through the detector - several of them setting off alarms.

Some passengers appeared bewildered that no one was there to check the through. It took more than two hours for the TSA to notify Port Authority officers about the breach.
