Travel chaos on July 4th: “toxic” green liquid runs across the floor of Miami International Airport



For Americans traveling for the Fourth of July, chaos reigned at Miami International Airport after a mysterious green liquid leaked all over the floor.

The liquid poured from the ceiling of the terminal, covering the tiles in worryingly fluorescent puddles.

The flood was caused by a broken pipe in Concourse G of Miami airport. Authorities identified the green liquid as glycol and assured passengers that it was only dangerous if digested.

An area of ​​the terminal was cordoned off with yellow tape while passengers took photos and videos of the strange liquid.

Footage of the incident shows the fluorescent liquid leaking from the ceiling of the hall as shocked passengers walk past.

“This is really crazy,” a passenger is heard saying as the green liquid covers the floor.

Another person filming the ground near a gate says, “Oh my God, look at the airport. What happened?”

The camera pans to several seating areas in the airport, where almost the entire floor is covered with the green liquid.

The airport said there were no flight delays due to the leak.

A spokesman said: “The valve to the pipeline has been closed to stop the leak and clean-up operations are currently underway.”

“We thank our passengers in Hall G for their patience and understanding.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, glycol is a “useful industrial compound found in many consumer products.”

“Examples include antifreeze, hydraulic brake fluids, some stamp pad inks, ballpoint pens, solvents, paints, plastics, films and cosmetics.”

The TSA expects to screen a record number of passengers over the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
