Kayakers Breach New York's JFK Airport Security

Sunday, 27 July 2014 06:30 AM

Two kayakers have been cited for trespassing after breaching a security perimeter at New York's Kennedy Airport.

Airport workers found the men on a navigational pier at the end of a runway around 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

The men tell the New York Post they rowed to the closest point on shore after overturning their kayak and losing a pair of paddles in Jamaica Bay.

It was the same runway where a dripping wet man scaled an 8-foot fence and walked into the airport after his personal watercraft ran out of gas in August 2012.

In both cases the airport's $100 million Perimeter Intrusion Detection System of surveillance cameras and motion detectors failed to detect the men who climbed ashore.

Port Authority Police issued the kayakers summonses.
