A Transportation Safety Administration agent at Orlando International Airport is seen on surveillance tape moving a bag containing an exploding lithium-ion battery away from passengers during a panic Friday.
All security checkpoints have since reopened, while Orlando International Airport confirmed that approximately 24 flights were cancelled as a result.

After the incident, thousands of people were forced to go back through the TSA lines, causing severe delays and flight cancelations.

That was when I was 16 years old, just because we just looked at each other", he added, prompting laughter from the audience. The Chief Executive also said he is excited to meet Trump. "You f**k with my countrymen, I won't let you off the hook".
"Others hearing the luggage being dropped, stanchions falling, and rapid movement mistook the sounds as gunfire and within seconds a spontaneous evacuation of the main terminal occurred", Brown said in the letter.
"After an investigation, it was determined that a lithium battery inside a camera overheated and exploded".
Orlando Police had to assure the public that no shots had been fired inside the terminal following reports of a loud noise in the building that had people running for cover.
No injuries were reported during the incident. But it seems like a good time for a PSA reminder: Always keep your lithium ion batteries in carry-on and ideally separate from the camera itself.
