A movie theater in the suburbs of Seattle, Washington, was evacuated after a package containing a “highly contagious human substance” was mistakenly shipped to the wrong address. The theater manager opened up the box and discovered a yellow liquid inside. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution after some of the liquid splashed on him.
Hazmat teams analyzed the package as authorities evacuated the theater and surrounding buildings. They determined that the liquid was urine that had been "disposed of appropriately in a bio container." They discarded the urine samples, and the movie theater reopened.
The package was supposed to be delivered to a medical clinic in Tacoma, which is about 30 miles away. Authorities are not sure how the container ended up at the movie theater.
