Video shows guard at Newark airport leaving post

A man who sneaked through security to meet a woman caused Sunday's terminal shutdown at Newark Liberty International Airport.

A surveillance video released Thursday shows a guard leaving his post, allowing the man to sneak into the terminal without going through security.

Sunday evening's security breach caused massive delays after federal officials closed the terminal for six hours.

The video shows a man embracing a woman before she enters a secured, passengers-only area of the terminal. After the guard leaves his podium for several seconds, the woman comes back halfway toward the exit and motions to the man, who ducks under the rope and walks past the vacant podium.

The video was released at the insistence of New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg.
