Panics in NYC show need for better prep

Chaos erupted Friday night at Penn Station after false reports of an active shooter sent throngs of people running for the exits. Sixteen people were hurt in the panic, which was actually triggered by police Tasering an unruly passenger. Then Sunday night in Coney Island, an apparent dispute involving glass bottles was also mistaken for the sound of gunshots and had people running for safety. Both incidents recalled the pandemonium at JFK Airport in August 2016 when the sound of people cheering on Olympian Usain Bolt was mistaken for gunfire and led to a panicked evacuation of the airport terminal.
