Man Dies After Forcing His Way Into Secure Area At Honolulu Airport

Penetrated The Commuter Terminal At The Airport Early Saturday Morning

A man died Saturday after he forced his way past security at Honolulu International Airport Saturday.

The Hawaii Department of Transportation said in a news release that the man forced his way into the secure area of the commuter terminal at 0548 local time Saturday morning.

The suspect was immediately placed in custody.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded, including Securitas Law Enforcement Officers, State Sheriffs and Transportation Security Administration officers. The suspect became unresponsive at the scene. Life-saving measures were initiated by the Honolulu Fire Department, EMS and Airport Rescue Fire Fighters. The suspect was transported to a nearby hospital where he died.

One law enforcement officer with Securitas was injured and has been taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The incident occurred at the security checkpoint at the Island Air and Mokulele Airlines commuter terminal, according to HI DOT spokesman Tim Sakahara in a news conference.

The McClatchy news service reports that the man was not a ticketed passenger, and it was not clear what his intent was for breaking through security. He was not armed and appeared to be acting alone, according to Sakahara.
