This is so sad and yet it was encouraging that the crowd knew what to do and no one got hurt. Brian Liebforth was the Tweeter onsite when the motorcycle malfunctioned in New York's Times Square panicking the crowd.  He writes that people ran out of their shoes and lft their things seeking safety. Thankfully after so much loss this month this was a false alarm.

On the upside Times Square is always thought of as such a target let's hope they gained valuable information for future better evacuation strategies.
