Wedding Favors Mistaken for Explosives, Denver Airport Evacuated
Authorities at one of the largest air hubs in the nation were driven to evacuate the premises after TSA officials spotted what appeared to be fuses protruding from wax in a piece of checked luggage.
The luggage, found at Denver International Airport, belonged to a bride- and groom-to-be whose first names both start with T. They were en route to their TNT-themed wedding with some of the party favors in their bag.
It was not until after the airport had been evacuated and bomb specialists called in, that it was discovered the "explosives" were in fact only small bottles of bath salts intended for the couple's guests.
The TSA issued a statement via Instagram involving the September 22 incident, ensuring the public that the scare was a false alarm and business as usual resumed after about 20 minutes.
