This would be hilarious if there wasn’t any damage done. A prank caller convinced employees of a Coon Rapids Burger King to smash all of the windows of the restaurant to keep the building from exploding, Coon Rapids police say. The incident happened Friday evening at the Burger King on the 2000 block of Northdale Boulevard.
According to police, employees received a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Coon Rapids Fire Department. The caller said the restaurant was pressurized and could explode, so the employees needed to break the windows to relieve the pressure. They followed instructions perfectly as you can see in the video below. All of the employees involved should turn in their name tags (they have those right?) out of embarrassment.
I wish I could have seen the faces of the police when they showed up to the scene. What happened to common sense people???
