A toilet at Nashville International Airport had been stuffed with paper towels and overflowed Thursday morning.

Passengers were shocked to find out this isn't the first time this has happened at the airport.

"Second time? Oh no, there would be some backlash on that. I mean, accidents happen but that's a big accident," said traveler Joe Carlucci. "Second time that has happened? First time that's OK, but a second time?"

A similar incident happened in June last year.
