9 JULY 2018: LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

New York Giants NFL player A.J. Francis accused the TSA over Twitter of opening his mother’s ashes during an inspection of hold luggage and not replacing the lid correctly, causing her remains to spill over his clothes. TSA initially apologised for the incident but the following day, after analysing video footage of the search, determined that Francis’ bag had alarmed, that the container was unmarked, wrapped in tin foil and loosely packed, and that the screener could not have known that they were handling human remains.
