Panic at Disney World: False Reports of Shooting Sends 'Wave' of Crowds Stampeding for Safety


Crowds spending Christmas night at Downtown Disney stampeded to safety after false reports of a shooting.

A reported altercation at a restaurant led some to believe that shots had been fired — a rumor quickly dispelled by the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Nevertheless, in the moment, crowds panicked and ran for their lives.

A man identified as Dave on Twitter recounted the experience and said he overheard a Disney employee explain the incident started when someone "thought they heard something."

A representative for Walt Disney World could not be immediately reached by TheBlaze for comment.
