An Indianapolis man bringing his grandfather’s ashes through a Central Florida airport is now asking for an apology from TSA officials and the worker who he says opened the jar and spilled it.
John Gross was going through airport security when he said an agent found the jar marked with the words
“human remains” on it in his bag.
After explaining that it contained his grandfather’s ashes, he said the TSA agent opened the jar and started using her finger to sift through it.
That’s when Gross
said she s pilled it. Instead of an apology, she started laughing.
TSA rules say a crematory container in carry-on baggage must pass through the X-ray machine at the security checkpoint.
But, the agency’s website says human remains are to be opened under “no circumstances.”
