Flight back en route after suspicious device found on plane

NEW YORK (AP) - Passengers in New York City have resumed their flight to Madrid hours after authorities determined that strange wiring found in the plane's bathroom was not an explosive device.

Delta Flight 126 had left the gate at Kennedy Airport around 8 p.m. Thursday, but returned about an hour later after a passenger reported finding the wires. The 206 passengers were evacuated.

The NYPD says the wires were determined to be non-explosive but apparently didn't belong to the plane.

Delta spokeswoman Sarah Lora says Flight 126 departed for Madrid at 3:43 a.m. Friday.

She says the flight had returned to JFK "out of an abundance of caution."
