He jumped from hotel balcony into airport atrium area, police say

ORLANDO, Fla. - A Transportation Security Administration officer was killed Saturday morning after jumping from a hotel balcony into the atrium of Orlando International Airport, authorities said.

The incident caused the Federal Aviation Administration to briefly ground all flights, causing delays and massive lines at security checkpoints, which were closed because of the suicide.

Paramedics transported the man, who was in his 40s, to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police called the suicide an isolated incident and said reports of other security issues were false.

"We are working closely with our partners at @TSA and @MCO to restore normal airport operations. We ask that you have patience with airport personnel as they work through this tragic incident," the department said on Twitter.

Jim Gregory, a spokesman for TSA, said the officer had just finished his shift when he jumped.

Souces told ABC News that investigators believe the incident was a "statement suicide," designed to send a message to the public.

The officer’s personal andwork histories are now being examined and his social media is being dissected to determine what prompted the apparent suicide, the sources said.

The incident caused several security checkpoints to be breached, a spokesperson for the airport said.

"In an abundance of caution, all passengers are being rescreened and in bound aircraft for airsides 2 and 4 may be delayed. Allow extra time for screening as some there may be delays in the process," the airport said in a statement.

James Shaw, a guest at the hotel, said he saw the TSA officer climb over the railing of the one of the balconies that overlook the atrium.

"Thought it was strange and then thought he may be observing the security area below since he was TSA. I wish I would have said something to him," Shaw said.

As of shortly before 3 p.m., 97 flights from the airport had been delayed, and 45 were canceled, according to the flight-tracking site FlightAware.com. Dozens of flights coming into the airport also were delayed or canceled.


Poster Comment:

If the worthless TSA had never been established this man would still be alive. He no doubt jumped because he realized how utterly useless was his work.

The TSA was never designed to actually protect us from anything. It is Kabuki theater to condition the sheeple to submit to abuse by the government. The TSA was created by Bush 43 to fool the people into believing he was doing something to protect them but in reality was a vehicle for the rich RINOs who supported him to sell worthless and unusable security equipment to the Federal government and to enrich themselves at taxpayer expense. It was continued by Obama to provide a make work program for his supporters too stupid to make hamburgers.

That’s the dumbest, most unsubstantiated horseshit I’ve ever heard. He committed suicide because he was weak (mentally) and nature finds a way to thin those useless fucks.

The dumb parasite finally realized his additional free month of paid vacation was over and he'd have to go back to "work" feeling up kids and old ladies.

That's awful inconsiderate of him!

His bosses should fine and maybe even suspend him for this!

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
