After an urn with cremated remains was improperly screened, hundreds of travelers were evacuated fro an Indiana airport and than had to pass security a second time Friday.
The Transportation Security Administration said officials could not locate the passenger to rescreen the urn, so the concourses at Indianapolis International Airport were evacuated around 6:20 a.m. as a precaution.
The evacuated passengers then went through security screening again and the concourses reopened around 7:35, airport spokeswoman Susan Sullivan said.
"All this happened early enough that I'm guessing very few flights were probably delayed," Sullivan said.
The TSA cannot comment on what specifically went wrong with the screening of the urn Friday, said spokeswoman Lara Uselding.
A TSA statement said that passengers may include a crematory container in their carry-on luggage, unless it generates an opaque image during the X-ray that prevents the screener from seeing what is inside. Those urns are not allowed through the checkpoint, the statement said.
