Los Angeles International Airport flights back to normal after dry ice explosion in bathroom


LOS ANGELES — Flights are back to normal at Los Angeles International Airport after a plastic bottle containing dry ice exploded in an employee bathroom.

The Sunday evening explosion caused both commotion in LAX’s terminal 2 and delays to up to four flights after airport police halted security screening.

No injuries were reported.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said the bathroom was in an area of the terminal that was not accessible to the public.

Investigators were trying to determine how the bottle wound up in the bathroom.
