Resident Dies During Nursing Home Bomb Threat

A bomb threat called in to a nursing home led to an evacuation of residents in 50 degree temperatures during a move to safety. One terminally ill resident died during the move.  Details on the death were not revealed due to privacy concerns. No bomb was found when the home was searched by a bomb detection dog. 

However, the move caused a commotion and stopped traffic in a one lane road while residents were moved to a safe location and back to the home after the area was deemed safe by police enforcement. The entire episode lasted just over an hour, but residents and staff were understandably shaken in the short time that transpired. For more, read the story.
