Battery-powered toothbrush prompts airport scare The battery-powered toothbrush was responsible for the sound that gave rise to fears of a bomb
ATLANTA — The tick-tick-ticking sound of a bag alarmed employees at the world's busiest airport, but it has turned out to be nothing more than a passenger's toothbrush.
The battery-powered toothbrush was responsible for the sound that gave rise to fears of a bomb at Atlanta's airport Friday morning. It led police to cordon off a section of the north terminal while a bomb squad responded.
