Kelly Ripa: 11-Year-Old Foils Airport Security
Kelly and Joel discussed a story about an eleven-year-old boy who managed to fly from Manchester, England to Rome, Italy, completely undetected. He ran away from his mother and headed to the airport, getting through five security checks by pretending to be with other families. After other passengers became suspicious of the boy traveling alone, the plane landed in Rome and then brought the boy right back to England.
Joel said that he understands traveling with small children– he has a seven-year-old and a four-year-old. On a recent trip to Rome, his four-year-old fell asleep on the plane, and when they landed, Joel and his wife could not wake him. Every time they tried, he would attack them like a “wild animal.” Joel joked that “it’s sort of like working with Chevy Chase!”
Kelly Ripa: Sushi Restaurant Cheat
