Kid hijacked: Mom held for hoax

Kid hijacked: Mom held for hoax - Well there I was on my way to the shop to grab some lunch for the family, and I here this news bulletin that a six year old girl has been hijacked, the news report went on to explain that the mother was driving when hijacked, she managed to get away but her daughter was left in the car as the hijackers fled. They even had the family on the broadcast, pleading for everyone to lookout for the car.

I must say, I thought they didn't sound too frantic. Upon arriving home I was going to tell my wife, but thought rather not seeing as we have a 3 month old daughter, this would only upset her.

I get to work this morning only to see this news post that the whole thing was a hoax, how can people do that? Well I am happy that I didn't perpetuate the lie and spread the news.

In the traffic one morning

WTH. Seems like the problem with hijackers "posing" as police is quite a problem for this bunch.
