Authorities Say He Was Hit By Laser
Someone, somehow, for some unknown
reason, fired a laser right into the cockpit of a Delta Airlines
737 last week, injuring the first officer. The TSA, unsure of
whether this was a terror attack, vowed to track down the source of
the laser and conduct a full investigation.
The Washington Times reports the 737 was on a five-mile final
over Salt Lake City (UT), arriving from Dallas (TX), when the red
laser light bathed the cockpit.
The copilot reportedly suffered a burned retina. There's no
indication whether the injury is permanent or job-threatening.
Delta refused comment and would not release the copilot's name. The
aircraft landed safely and no one else on board was hurt.
