Sprinklers Douse Passengers at LA Airport, Prompt Evacuation

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A terminal at Los Angeles International Airport was evacuated temporarily Sunday morning after sprinklers malfunctioned and showered passengers with water.

There was minor flooding in Terminal One's baggage and screening areas, and some flights were delayed.

Officials blamed the problem on a broken water pipe.

Passengers described a chaotic scene during the evacuation as people knocked over rope lines to rush to the exits.
