Ridley Park - Boeing has evacuated around 500 employees from its Pennsylvania plant after a bomb threat on Tuesday morning. The warning note was left in a bathroom.
According to a Boeing spokesman, Damian Mills, the plant in Ridley Park was evacuated at just after 7:30 am, to allow authorities to investigate a possible bomb threat. “The threat related to one of our production facilities,” said Mills.
Police and firefighters were called to the scene and bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in to go through the facility.
Cliff Price, a Boeing aircraft tech, told NBC10, "A sign was put in the bathroom saying something about they had planted a few bombs in the building, so Boeing did the right thing and they got everybody evacuated out of the building."
However, the Boeing spokesman did not confirm how the threat was received.
Employees from the plant who were evacuated were sent home and operations were suspended in that part of the plant.
By 1:40 pm no bomb had been found and authorities said they were wrapping up the investigation. Boeing officials said that operations would resume when the next shift begins at 2:30 pm.
