Anton Beresch and a number of his Dawn Brigade terrorists seized Ontario Airport in the early hours of Day 5, and Meghan and her young son were among the hostages there. She tried to comfort the boy in the early minutes of the takeover. At 9:22am she quietly whimpered that they would all die, but another hostage, Derek Huxley, tried to reassure her. When Beresch and his lieutenant chose a man in a suit at random from the hostages, Meghan particularly was stricken with fear.
She and her son were rescued when the airport terminal was taken from the terrorists by Curtis Manning and CTU SWAT field agents, who were aided by Jack Bauer.
