SALT LAKE CITY (Grey Information) – Baggage screening at Salt Lake Metropolis Worldwide Airport was halted for almost two hours after TSA officers discovered a cranium inside a checked bag.
In accordance with a information launch from the TSA, the suspicious merchandise was discovered Sept. 18 after an explosive detector flagged it as a possible safety risk.
TSA officers noticed what seemed to be a cranium “with unidentifiable parts inside” on the X-ray display. The merchandise resembled an explosive machine, TSA officers mentioned.
Officers inspected the cranium and found it was manufactured from plastic, putty, and a 9-volt battery and sensor.
After talking with the passenger who introduced the cranium, it was decided to be a medical coaching machine for surgeons to show them methods to conduct a lobotomy.
Though it was not an explosive machine, TSA officers decided the merchandise was not permitted to journey on a business plane. It was held by the TSA till it could possibly be picked up by the traveler when he returned to Salt Lake Metropolis.
