Authorities in Orlando have reportedly detonated a suitcase filled with electronics that prompted the temporary closure of a road near the entrance to SeaWorld.
WESH.com reports that the suspicious item was found early Tuesday by a security guard on Central Florida Parkway near the theme park's Discovery Cove entrance.
Authorities said the suitcase, which was wrapped in an electrical cord, was detonated with a water cannon shortly after 5:30 a.m. EST. A portion of Central Florida Parkway that had been closed reopened by 6 a.m.
An investigation into the incident by Orange County Sheriff's deputies is ongoing, according to the report.
