NYC Airport Mistook Happiness For Gunfire
Multiple emergency vehicles rushed to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport late Sunday night after there was report of gunfire. NYPD evacuated two entire terminals thanks to additional calls from travelers claiming they heard shots fired in separate wings. After a lengthy investigation, police confirmed that no guns were ever present and the terminals were reopened. Turns out, it was just people cheering for Usain Bolt. Hard to believe anyone could be that happy at JFK airport, but the clapping and banging of travelers watching the Olympic star got misinterpreted as gunshots, prompting some concerned citizens to call security.
