New York City, New York The NYPD Bomb Squad was called to a Manhattan construction site when workers dug up an old aerial bomb. After further investigation, it was determined that the ordnance was not live. The bomb was actually purposely buried on-site as part of a stunt pulled by a nightclub back in the '80s. The inert bomb, reportedly purchased a military surplus store, was filled with documents and mementos to serve as a time capsule.
Although the public and the bomb squad were never at risk as the item was inert, the 30 year old stunt certainly cost the city in terms of resources. It also inconvenienced businesses and residents in the area.
