A Moment of Silence

Taking a moment for TSO Hernandez
LGB along with airports across the nation honored transportation security officer Gerardo Hernandez on Friday, Nov. 8 with a moment of silence at 9:20 a.m. Travelers stopped and paid tribute for 40 seconds to TSO Hernandez, who was killed in the of duty on Friday, Nov. 1 after a shooting at LAX. TSO Hernandez is the first agent to be killed in the line of duty.

 TSA made an announcement to travelers at the security checkpoint asking for travelers participation. The moment was a rarity at the airport and we at LGB are ever grateful for the work that the TSA does and the security that they provide.

Video Transcription: Transportation Security Officer Gerardo Hernandez who, gave his life one week ago, while protecting the traveling public. May the work you continue to do as an agency be worthy of this sacrifice as great as the one made by TSO Hernandez. I would like to ask each of you to join us in a moment of  silence in honor of TSO Hernandez.

*Moment of silence*

On behalf of TSA thank you all for your participation.
