Paris Hilton Evacuated After Knife Found On Plane

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was a scary moment for Paris Hilton: A knife on a Hawaii-bound jetliner delayed her flight out of Los Angeles.

Hilton posted two tweets Tuesday about how she and 203 other passengers aboard a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757 were ordered off before takeoff at Los Angeles International Airport. Flight 1197, which also had a crew of eight, was heading for Maui.

Hilton tweeted “security made everyone deplane because they found a big knife.” Then, she punched up, “Scary that it got on plane” and “So strange a knife got on board.”

Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott says it was a catering knife accidentally left behind by the cabin crew and the search was a precaution. The flight was delayed about an hour.

Federal Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says TSA wasn’t involved.

    I love how the headline reads that she was evacuated (leading the reader to believe that she was the ONLY one to be evacuated), but the story happens to mention the onter 203 passengers that don’t matter. Sorry, just my opinion. She is not the most important person in the world, in fact to me she matters not at all. I dont wish her harm, but she doesnt come before others.

    Is this really a news story? Does anyone care? Another example of how the media has become entertainment when it should be presenting real news.

    Whoa what a scare. I wonder if we would have had a day mourning for loss of that national treasure.
