Around 7 p.m. n Sunday, a 20-ounce plastic bottle containing dry ice exploded in a Terminal 2 restroom. The dry ice bomb did not injure anyone, nor did it cause damage.
But, airport officials suspended operations in the terminal and delayed flights until about 8:45 p.m. as the bomb squad responded.
In May, a dry ice bomb temporarily closed Disneyland’s Toontown.
