ORLANDO, Fla. -- A child's toy sparked a bomb scare late Tuesday morning. The Orange County Bomb Squad was on scene investigating a suspicious device, a toy pony, on Whisper Glen Court in Orlando. Just before noon it was blown up.
The bomb squad sent a robot to investigate the toy pony.
The incident happened close to Waterbridge Elementary. The school was put on partial lockdown during the incident, but the lockdown has since been lifted.
Homes in the area were evacuated at the time.
I love how many on this board act like, people who like bombs would NEVER use a child's toy or harm innocents.
