Wedding Favors That Looked like TNT Sparked Evacuation at Denver Airport
What was intended to be a clever wedding favor turned out to cause an entire airport to evacuate.
What was intended to be a funny wedding favor was no laughing matter for the TSA when they were checking bags in a screening room at Denver International Airport.
An agent watching an X-ray monitor spotted wax figures with fuses inside one checked piece of luggage. Inside the bag were small bottles marked “TNT.”
It was determined that the figures were novelty bottles with bath salts and they were labeled “TNT” because the bride and groom’s first name begins with the letter “T.”
The TSA took to Instagram to issue a statement with an image of the favors:
#TSATravelTips - Be mindful of what you’re traveling with and what it might appear as on an X-ray monitor. These novelty bottles of bath salts topped with wax-covered lids and fuses were discovered in a checked bag at the Denver International Airport (DEN) and resulted in a 20-minute evacuation while bomb specialists cleared the items. What looked like possible explosives were just wedding souvenirs. The bride and groom’s names both start with "T"; thus "TNT.”
The September 22 incident was a reminder to all passengers that they should be mindful of what they are traveling with in their bags.
