Woman’s ‘bomb dream’ leads to £1/2 million evacuation of North Sea rig

Oil rig

 

More than 500 people were working on the Safe Scandinavia oil rig.Then one day, a woman told her colleagues about her dream that a bomb would be on the platform. After her dream, the workers started to evacuate. Police investigated the truth of her dream. The RAF (Royal Air Force), coastguard and civilian helicopters were sent to the rescue of the workers. However, the incident in her dream  never happened. And the large-scale evacuation of over 5 hours  cost £500,000, including the operational cost of the RAF, coastguard and police.

      According to the article, someone thought that it was only dream, so people shouldn’t evacuate.But most people were not critical thinker. So people evacuated. The incident was that a few critical thinker weren’t believed .

    I wonder if the woman added “it’s just a dream” in the end of conversation.
