    Fox 4 Now: TSA absence causes passenger to miss flight (Aug xx 2013)

    Carl Hydes thought arriving at Punta Gorda airport three hours before his flight departure would ensure he got on the plane. But, that wasn't the case. Hydes tells Fox 4 he stepped outside for a smoke break after learning his flight was delayed. When he tried to return inside, security told him he couldn't get back in because all TSA officers had gone home for the day ... Hydes ending up missing his flight and had to pay $400 to book another flight out the next day, on top of the $120 he was out from his original ticket.
