DENVER (KDVR) – A female passenger at Denver International Airport caused a stir Tuesday morning when she stripped naked inside Concourse B, airport officials said.

The incident happened at about 8:45 a.m. when, according to DIA spokeswoman Jenny Schiavone, the woman was caught smoking a cigarette at gate B81, in a non-smoking area.

At some point after airport workers told her to extinguish the cigarette, the woman took off her clothing. It wasn’t immediately clear why. However, Denver Police say it was unrelated to the smoking issue.

The whole incident played-out over a span of about 20 minutes.

A witness told FOX31 Denver’s Justin Joseph that parents hurried to cover their children’s eyes, and many passengers simply appeared to be shocked.

Authorities eventually transported the woman to a hospital, Schiavone said.

Denver Police say the woman will not be arrested and she will not face any charges.

In an exclusive video obtained by FOX31 Denver you can see the woman strip down in the middle of a shocked crowd.
