July 21 (UPI) -- A traveler arriving at a Bahamas airport discovered something highly unusual at baggage claim -- loose crabs making a break for freedom on and around the belt.

A video captured in the baggage claim area at Lynden Pindling International Airport shows dozens of crabs running loose among the luggage on the belt, while some of their crustacean cohorts climb down and scuttle across the floor.


The video shows some people working to corral the crabs into the cooler they apparently escaped from.

"We were arriving at LPIA in Nassau, Bahamas when I noticed the crabs had broken free of the box they were in and attempted to make their getaway," the filmer wrote.
