Considering how extraordinary this incident is, toomanybooks, I wonder if you see any possibility that your boy somehow misinterpreted the situation. Humans can be very strange, so I don't doubt that a couple of sickos might try something like this, but it boogles the mind that they would do something with such a high probability of getting caught.

Obviously a 10-year-old alone in an airside restroom has mom/dad or some other responsible adult very close by, and probably within earshot of a scream. If that happens, the perps are in very deep trouble, as there are all sorts of cops and security guards nearby, not to mention plenty of bystanders who would promptly volunteer to tackle these guys and beat them to a pulp.

Still, people sometimes do some pretty inexplicable things, so your boy might have gotten this one 100% correct.
