A security breach at John F. Kennedy International Airport created delays Friday morning at Terminal 7.

CBS Station WCBS reports that at 6 a.m. a passenger in the terminal was flagged by TSA. The passenger went through a security checkpoint without being pulled aside and screened.

At this time, all passengers in Terminal 7 had to be re-screened.

By 7:40 a.m. the issue was resolved and passengers were allowed to board their flights, though residual delays lingered.

On Twitter, passengers stuck at the airport complained about the disruption: "JFK is insanity right now. Absolutely nothing is moving. People sleeping on luggage," tweeted Shanna Carpenter.
