3000 years later, this mummy finds its way to Miami airport (MIA) none the less stuck since Monday at customs. It was making its way to West Palm Beach for a museum exhibit. Although it’s staying a few days while it is being investigated, the mummy of the young girl will still make its debut on Oct. 11th the opening date of “Afterlife: Tombs and Treasures of Ancient Egypt.”
With this delay at customs, it also pushed back a medical scan,which is suppose to determined how the mummified 4- to 8-year-old girl died. Officials at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium are handling the holdup very well, and are being extremely patience.
It was a few ivory pieces boxed with the mummy that caused the delay Flying from Asia to Miami, where the exhibit was extremely popular. Strict regulations on ivory imports were put into place earlier this year to ensure the safety of endangered elephants.
Two other mummies are also being held at the airport with the mummified girl. There’s also all of the exhibit artifacts, which all arrived in Florida by air.
The CT scans of the mummy, are suppose to be scanned by St.Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, which they’re hoping to have the results by Tuesday. They planned to announce the results on Wednesday morning.
The “Afterlife” exhibit, already seen by more than 4.5 million people worldwide, will be at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium through April 18.
