Dangerous Accordion?

School evacuation


In January, a stray accordion case caused a school evacuation in Grand Island, Nebraska. Who among us dares to polka fun at this near tragedy?

Capt. Robert Falldorf of the Grand Island Police Department said a staff member at Walnut Middle School spotted "a suspicious package" in the band room and "could not recall seeing it there before," according to The Grand Island Independent. "The Grand Island Public Schools safety officer was contacted, with that person agreeing that Walnut Middle School should be evacuated as a precaution."

The State Patrol brought in a canine unit before the box was determined to be a harmless accordion inside a case. No one was harmed.
