Water Filter Delays Flights for 90 Minutes at Minneapolis Airport

The Humphrey terminal at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was evacuated for more than 90 minutes after a suspicious bag set off an alarm.

The suspicion centered on the bag’s two capped PVC pipes containing a benign granular substance and wires that were not connected to the pipes.┬áThe Bloomington bomb squad removed the bag and determined that the “sandlike substance was not an explosive.”

The bag’s owner said the items were for a water filtration device and that had caused a similar disruption in 2009 at the airport in Long Beach, Calif.┬áThe water filter owner was placed on a later flight.
