When it comes to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), grandpa’s cremated ashes are just another casualty in making the airways safe.

As reported  by The Blaze, John Gross was traveling from Orlando, Florida, to Indiana with his grandfathers remains, which he says were in a jar that was tightly sealed and marked “Human Remains.”

Nonetheless, a TSA agent at the screening checkpoint decided to open the jar and inspect the contents.

In an interview with RTV6, Goss said:

“They opened up my bag, and I told them, ‘Please, be careful. These are my grandpa’s ashes,’” . “She picked up the jar. She opened it up.

“She used her finger and was sifting through it. And then she accidentally spilled it.”

“She didn’t apologize. She started laughing. I was on my hands and knees picking up bone fragments. I couldn’t pick up all, everything that was lost. I mean, there was a long line behind me.”

As The Blaze notes, according to the TSA website, agents are not allowed to open cremation containers under any circumstances.

The policy reads, in part: “Out of respect to the deceased and their family and friends, under no circumstances will an officer open the container even if the passenger requests this be done.”
