When Tampa, Florida resident Ivelise Hernandez arrived in St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport on a motionless day, she expected nothing out of the ordinary. The young woman was on her way to a flight to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her friend Rico Bankston, who had driven her to the airport, escorted her to security.
It was a routine trip to the airport, and there was nothing to suggest otherwise. Everything seemed to be calm. Then they noticed a few steps ahead of them in the security line – a man had to throw away a package. Little Ivelise knew then how the episode would affect her life in an unforgettable way.
