TNT wedding favors caused evacuation at Denver airport
DENVER (AP) — A wedding gift was no joke to TSA agents checking bags in a screening room at Denver International Airport.
An agent watching an X-ray monitor spotted wax and fuses inside a checked bag at the airport.
TSA said the bride and groom’s names both start with a “T,” so their wedding souvenirs were labeled TNT.
The incident happened Sept. 22.
TSA wrote issued a statement on Instagram that there was a 20-minute evacuation while bomb specialists checked the bag.
They determined that while the wax and fuses were on bottles that said TNT, inside was just bath salts. The bottles were wedding favors for guests.
