Cindy McCain was forced to apologize for a false claim she made about stopping child trafficking at Sky Harbor Airport.
McCain claimed in an interview on KTAR that last week, she saved a child from being trafficked after she reported seeing a child with a woman at the airport and “something didn’t look right.”
According to KTAR, “Phoenix Police Sgt. Armando Carbajal told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Wednesday that they conducted a welfare check on a child at the airport Thursday at McCain’s request.”
Sgt. Carbajal told KTAR that “officers determined there was no evidence of criminal conduct or child endangerment.”
At Phoenix Sky Harbor, I reported an incident that I thought was trafficking. I commend the police officers for their diligence. I apologize if anything else I have said on this matter distracts from “if you see something, say something”
