Tuesday evening, police cleared the lobby of Trump Tower in New York over reports of a “suspicious package”. After investigation, authorities confirmed to the Associated Press the object in question was a backpack containing children’s toys.

Bystander video from the tower showed a chaotic scene, with dozens fleeing the misplaced symbols of cheer.

“It was hysteria,” wrote witness Andrew Martin on Twitter. “Police were shouting and telling people to leave.”

At time of writing, it was unclear what kind of children’s toys prompted the unplanned Die Hard tribute.
