German Bomb Squad Called After Vibrator Shuts Down Berlin Airport

By the time he made his way over to Terminal D, the bomb squad had arrived, and officials had shut down the terminal – which would delay passengers by around an hour. 

However, he was reluctant to properly explain the contents of the bag — possibly because of embarrassment, according to a federal police spokesperson — saying instead that his luggage contained “technical stuff.” –CNN

The passenger, who wishes to remain anonymous for professional reasons, told RT that he was taken to a separate area “where he watched a member of the bomb squad, clad in full protective gear, walk slowly towards his bag.” 

“After 60 tense minutes, [the member of the bomb squad] returned laughing. The hand grenade was in fact a vibrator from Ann Summers that my girlfriend and I had purchased two weeks previous,” the passenger told RT, which reports that the incident left “the assembled security forces in stitches as the red-faced passenger returned to find they’d missed their flight home.”
