Bomb Scare in Gangnam District subway

Johnson Park, March 19, 2014, 4:27 p.m.


Chaos arose from a bomb scare at the Gangnam District Office Station this past Monday. A suspicious bag found at the Bundang Subway Line in Seoul was left on the platform.

Police viewed CCTV footage from the station to confirm a 65-year-old man who simply left the bag on the platform. Upon chilling inspection, the bag turned out to be a dozen old clothes and wire hangers.

Unhappy with the findings in the bag (or really happy yet upset), Police tracked the 65-year-old, Yoo, to Gwangmyeong, Gyeonggi Province and questioned him in his home. After learning that his uncle just passed away, and the clothes were from his aunt in his uncle’s memory, police decided not to press charges due to the simple nature of the mistake.
