MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A man was taken into custody Wednesday morning after he jumped a perimeter fence at Miami International Airport, authorities confirmed.
Police said the man, who was wearing a hospital gown, busted through the back window of an ambulance and dashed over to the fence.
He then ran through the tarmac before he was apprehended and brought over to the E gates, authorities said.
Back at the airport’s perimeter, police dogs sniffed around airport grounds to see if anything was dropped while the man was running.
Miami-Dade Public Works officials, as well as troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol and Miami-Dade police officers were all spotted at the scene.
The man’s identity was not immediately released and it’s unclear why he was initially being transported by ambulance.
