”America’’s Next Top Model” audition ends in bedlam after bomb fearsMarch 15th, 2009 - 1:17 pm ICT by ANI
New York, March 15 (ANI): ”America’’s Next Top Model” audition in Manhattan took a nasty turn after fears of a bomb placed inside a car left several people injured.
Scores of aspiring catwalk queens had gathered outside the Park Central Hotel to audition for The CW show, open to women under 5-feet-7 for the first time.
Lined up models ran for their lives, subsequently tumbling over barricades after an overheating black BMW sparked shouts, “There’’s a bomb!”
“The girls were running like it was 9/11 part two. I feared for my life,” The New York Daily News quoted Jennifer Brown, 27, Brooklyn, as saying.
Kiara McCarthy, 19, of Levittown, L.I, added: The metal barricade fell down. All of a sudden we heard this roar from behind us and we looked behind us and there’’s a wave of people falling on top of us.”
Rose, of Scranton, Pa further said: “We all fell on top of each other. People were squished against the wall, screaming, ”I can”t breathe! I can”t breathe!””
The chaos landed two women in hospital while authorities took in two others and one man for inciting a riot.
A CW rep said: “Representatives of The CW are working and cooperating with local authorities on the matter.
Meanwhile, many women were left facing disappointment after the audition was brought to an end following the stampede.
McCarthy said: I”m 5-foot-3. There’’s no way I can make it into a model agency. They would turn me away at the door. We had an opportunity and it was taken away from us.” (ANI)
