    A photo sent via AirDrop, a way to transfer photos between Apple devices, reportedly showed a suicide vest or someone wearing a suicide vest.

    A Florida-bound JetBlue flight was evacuated on Saturday at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey as passengers and flight attendants received a photo of a suicide vest, the Daily Mail reported.

    ​Upon receiving the photo, the attendants reported to the captain, who returned the aircraft with 150 passengers on board to the gate.

    ​Passengers and their luggage were re-screened by Port Authority police bomb-sniffing K-9 dogs.

    The flight finally departed from Newark after a three-and-a-half-hour delay.
