Luggage of hundreds of passengers contaminated after airport sewage leak

A toilet at Nashville International Airport in Tennessee overflowed, causing sewage to leak through the floor and onto the luggage of hundreds of passengers.

Officials said the toilet inside the airport overflowed because it was stuffed full with paper towels. The sewage leaked onto the luggage on a Southwest Airlines conveyor belt.

Southwest said no passengers were exposed to the sewage and that 380 bags were sanitized before being put on the planes.

Southwest also offered to replace some of the luggage.
