TSA Agents Forced Crying Man To Trash Item, But One Couple Secretly Rescued It.
Sometimes in life we see something happening that we just can’t let go. Often it’s something that just isn’t right. It’s always nice when someone steps in to try to right that wrong that is being done. That’s exactly what Amarri Hernandez and her boyfriend did back in April of 2016.
They were flying out of St. Pete Airport back to their Pittsburgh home when they saw another man being hassled by the TSA. He was trying to get on a flight back home to Ohio but the agents wouldn’t let him bring a package on board. The man was obviously distraught as he was forced to throw the package into the garbage.
Hernandez and her boyfriend went over to the garbage can and retrieved the package. When they got home they found a snow globe that was specially made as a keepsake. They took to Facebook to find the man and eventually they did. Both parties flew to Tampa to meet up and the globe was returned to the grateful couple. It’s always a great story when someone steps in to help right a wrong.
The real question though is why was the man not allowed to take it on his flight to Ohio but this couple was allowed to bring it on their flight to Pittsburgh? It just shows you how inconsistent TSA can be.

They saw how upset the man was so they grabbed it out of the garbage and took it with them. When they arrived home and opened it they found a keepsake and they immediately knew why the man was so upset at losing it.
The snow globe was a gift that was given to him by his mother. It celebrated when he and his wife adopted a five year old girl. There were sentimental photos inside of the globe.
There was an engraving on the globe. It said, “We love you Katie, Nana and Papa 1/25/16." It was placed right under the little girl's picture.

Hernandez yelled to the man at the airport that they would find a way to get the package back to him. At the time, they didn't even know what was inside of it.
