Last Saturday night, Aug. 25, 2007, the 11:00 PM local news on KNBC opened w/ a live, breaking story. They said that in the last hr. a fork-lift had pierced a container of RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL AT LAX. I have been looking for a folllow-up–in all media– since I heard the story, nearly a week ago. Nothing. Were they reporting a false alarm at the top of the news???? Or is there a cover-up ???
UPDATE: Eureka…An Answer To My Question!

LAX Forklift Accident Spills Radioactive Material
(CBS) LOS ANGELES An accident — not an act of terrorism — created a situation involving radioactive material at Los Angeles International Airport tonight, according to an airport spokeswoman.
A forklift punctured one of three cargo boxes containing low-grade radioactive material in the Lufthansa cargo building at Imperial Highway and Aviation Boulevard at about 8:10 p.m., said Nancy Castles of the Los Angeles World Airports, which operates LAX.
City firefighters contained the area of tarmac and a hazardous materials crew cleaned up the spill, Castles said.
About 31 workers were evaluated for exposure to radioactive material and released, Castles said.
The incident was being investigated as an accident and not an act of terrorism, she said.
