Bag leak closes BWI baggage area
BWI Airport officials say the baggage claim area and the lower level roadway were closed off after a bag was found leaking.
Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean says it happened Thursday about 12:30 p.m., when Delta flight 2224 from Atlanta arrived. A Delta employee noticed the bag was leaking an unknown liquid.
The central part of the baggage claim area and part of the airport's lower level was cordoned off, and the lower level roadway to the airport was shut down. Hazmat crews from Anne Arundel County arrived and evaluated the bag and substance.
Dean says the substance was found to be non-hazardous. He says the bag apparently originated from Nigeria and the owners were questioned by Maryland Transportation Authority police.
