The TSA Confiscated a 5-Year-Old's Buzz Lightyear Toy
It was a less-than-magical ending to a Disney World vacation.
On his way home from his first trip to Disney World, 5-year-old Levi Zilka found out his new Buzz Lightyear toy would not make the trip home with him. Levi and his parents were going through security at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport when the toy was confiscated by the TSA.
"We understand that things are scary out there right now but taking a toy from a five-year-old doesn't enhance national security," Levi’s father, David Zilka told WWMT-TV. The TSA threw out the toy, saying that realistic replicas of firearms must be checked (the parents only packed a carry-on).
