Thousands of passengers were delayed at Orlando International Airport after someone flushed the toilet.
According to the New York Daily News, a hazmat team arrived at the airport to clean up the raw sewage. The sewage traveled to a customs area. Investigators say that someone attempted to flush the contents of their suitcase down the toilet. None of the items were identified.
Passenger Mike Ortiz recalled his experience at the airport:
“As soon as we landed, they immediately told us that there were problems with the terminal and we would have to sit there on the tarmac for a while, there were carpets ripped up and there were floor fans trying to air out what was, I guess, some flooding going on.”
The flooding occurred last weekend, and officials are still investigating what was flushed down to cause a blockage in the sewage tank.
