Army veteran TSA agent runs exploding battery away from passengers at OIA

The TSA posted a video on their Instagram showing the heroic actions of one TSA officer. The bag was smoldering; no one hurt. Watch the unbelievable video here.

There has been NO shooting at Orlando International Airport.

This latest incident is bad news for photographers who are already frustrated with airport security in the U.S. tightening its policies regarding cameras and other large electronics. A security officer then scoops up the bag and carries it off to a less-populated area.

Brown said it was "an abundance of precaution" that he supported.

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.

The TSA agent, a 20-year Army veteran, said he believed the bag to be an improvised explosive device. "I leaned over, grabbed it, picked it up", Perez recalled. It could've happened, but it didn't.

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

Friendlies: Neymar helps Brazil defeat Japan as England hold Germany
Paris Saint Germain star Neymar Jr broke down during a press conference with Brazil manager Tite this morning and here's why. This is the latest chapter in an on-off story between Neymar and the English capital. "I think we are in a good way".

"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.
