A TSA employee jumped from a balcony at the Hyatt Regency Hotel inside the Orlando International Airport atrium Saturday morning, killing himself in what officials say was an isolated incident.
In very sad news, a man has jumped from the Hyatt Regency inside of the Orlando Airport.
Orlando police said the man jumped, and that it appeared to be a suicide. A witness told the news outlet he saw the agent climbing over the railing but thought that he was merely inspecting the security area. An investigation is ongoing, he said. They did describe him as a male in his 40s.
Upstairs, the confusion sparked rumors among hotel guests of a bomb threat or shooting, said James Shaw, who is staying at the Hyatt this weekend while his 6-year-old daughter competes in a dance competition there.
"Initially I thought some famous person had just walked through the airport", McCarthy told The Washington Post.
"Alright, so we're in the Orlando airport this morning and all I hear is a loud BANG followed by people screaming".

During the commotion following the incident, several security checkpoints were breached, an airport spokesperson told the TV station. Some airport tram services were briefly shut down as well, she said.
In the run-up to the temporary resolution, the president of Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) also threatened to call in a general strike to stop the shutdown that has affected some 800,000 federal workers, with half being forced to work without pay. All passengers at gates 70 to 129 had to be rescreened, the airport said. "Operations at [gates 1 through 59] are normal".
Images uploaded to social media show large crowds and lines gathering at the airport.
"It's just sad because the girls are so desensitized", McCarthy said.
Her daughter, 12, later told McCarthy that another parent had run into the room, screaming about a potential active shooter, and that they had all taken cover, huddling together and staying quiet.
