This is a story from a few days back now, and I haven't got all the info on it, so if anyone can assist, that would be great.
Anyway, a small group of people ran along a beach in peru or chile or some country in that area, shouting that a massive wave was coming. The rumor spread quickly and soon thousands of people fled in panic towards higher grounds. Many are supposed to have been injured during the panic that followed, and several killed.
So two questions: Can anyone supply more info on this story?
And what kind of stupid idiots would start a false rumor like that!? I hope they were caught and sent to help out the people of Indonesia.
