NEW YORK — Transportation Security Administration officers in New York bought a shirt for a shirtless boy who was traveling to Denver.

The TSA says the boy and his father arrived at a checkpoint at LaGuardia Airport on Wednesday and officers noticed the child did not have a shirt when he removed his coat for screening.

The father told officers all their clothes were in a checked bag and he didn’t realize his son wasn’t wearing a shirt.

Officers were concerned because temperatures in Denver were cold so two of them went to an airport shop and purchased an NYPD T-shirt.

An officer escorted them to their gate for their flight.
