News of the Weird Runner Up: Vibrating Bag Shuts Down Atlanta Airport Terminal

I’ve flown tons of times and have been through the TSA screening. It’s tough. Which is why I am always mindful of every tiny thing I pack. I don’t want any problems.

I guess not everyone thinks this way because travelers at Atlanta’s airport had a security scare on Friday morning. A bag, going through screening, was vibrating.

I know what you’re thinking! People do carry them on. Back to the story: Airport security shut down Atlanta’s North Terminal and sent a hazardous materials team to investigate. The vibrating and rumbling was caused by… an electric toothbrush! Disappointed?

What did we learn here? Right! Always take your batteries out (and put them in your carry on).
