Luggage found in retention pond

May 4, 2010

US Airways is struggling to explain how a checked bag ended up in a retention pond 24 miles southeast of the Indianapolis International Airport. Passenger David Dever said he waited in baggage claim Sunday night until he could wait no more. He took a taxi home, because his car keys were in the missing luggage. The next day, his bag was found in a retention pond at the Sundance Apartments off Southport Road. Dever said a couple of children's gifts from his trip to New York City were missing, as well as a pair of running shoes. Airport police and US Airways are investigating.
