Flight makes emergency landing after camera found in toilet

Updated: 

An American Airlines flight from San Francisco to New York was forced to make an emergency landing on Sunday after a camera, disguised as a flash drive, was found taped to a wall in the toilet.

The Daily Mail reports that this led to a bomb scare, which resulted in the plane being forced to make an emergency landing at Kansas City International Airport.

Reports indicate that a passenger found the device taped to the wall. This led to a safety alert, and officials investigated the object when the plane was safely on the ground. It was at this point that they discovered that the device wasn't a flash drive - a small piece of computer equipment designed to store and transport data - but a small camera, leading to speculation that it was placed there by an unknown individual who wished to obtain footage of passengers using the bathroom.

American Airlines confirmed to The Huffington Post that the flight had been diverted "due to a safety concern", but had no other information to disclose about the incident.

All 227 passengers and crew members were able to re-board the aircraft within about 90 minutes, in order to continue their journey to New York.
