A toy dinosaur got first-class treatment on a Southwest Airlines flight

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. On a Southwest Airlines flight from California to Washington, a little boy's toy dinosaur got the first-class treatment. Baggage handler Bryant Cisneros told CBS News that he and his co-workers made it their mission to keep the dinosaur, who's roughly the size of a child, from breaking. VIP Rex was photographed traveling alone by cart, bin and carousel before finally being reunited with his 8-year-old passenger. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
