False alarm cre­ates un­easy mo­ment

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SPORTS - FROM WIRE RE­PORTS

PGA Tour golfer Charles How­ell III was eat­ing break­fast in his ho­tel in Honolulu when the restau­rant started buzzing. Ev­ery­one had their phones. Ev­ery­one re­ceived the same push alert.

“BAL­LIS­TIC MIS­SILE THREAT IN­BOUND TO

HAWAII. SEEK IM­ME­DI­ATE SHEL­TER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”

“All the alarms went off at the same time,” How­ell said. “It got ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion. I didn’t know what to do. We all stared at each other. It kind of shows you the world we live in now. Your whole life can change in a sec­ond.”

The push alert turned out to be a mis­take.
