People fled in panic after hearing vibrating sounds coming from inside a garbage bin and believing that a bomb is about to explode, police in Italy said.
Modena police said that residents fled in panic and called firefighters after believing that terrorists hid a bomb in the garbage bin in Wednesday night.
Firefighters rushed to the scene, and an area of 200 meters was cordoned off.
A special unit inspected the garbage bin and they soon realized that the device was not a bomb. After being thoroughly checked, the device was identified as a sex toy.
The owner of the toy threw it away with the batteries inside and it began vibrating in the garbage bin, promoting the bomb scare.
