San Francisco Airport Worker Hurt in Minor Blast

A baggage handler at San Francisco International Airport was slightly injured on Sunday when a container with electrical equipment exploded as passengers boarded a Hawaii-bound United Airlines flight, according to an airport spokesman. United Flight 33, a Boeing 757, was immediately evacuated after the 9:15 a.m. incident, airport spokesman Michael McCarron said, and passengers were rerouted to another Hawaii-bound flight. “The baggage handler was moving bags when the hinges flew off” a fiberglass shipping container belonging to a passenger that contained electrical equipment related to avionics, McCarron said. He said the owner of the package was detained and was being questioned by authorities but that “they don’t expect anything unusual.” Local news stations reported that passengers heard a loud noise and felt the boarding galley shudder as they walked onto the plane.
