Posted on:   In: Blog, News

A duffle bag was left in the open parking lot late in the afternoon. This bag was ignored by the security guards posted near the gate because they thought a customer might have just left his belongings and will come back for it sooner or later. Early that evening, an explosion was heard in the open parking lot. It turned that the plain duffle bag was not that simple after all. Investigators and bomb experts found out that the bag contained IEDs or improvised explosives device and it was remotely triggered. The motive for the bombing was not immediately known but the trauma it had caused to the employees was felt right away. The experience of the people around the vicinity especially the customers would haunt them beyond that evening.

The damage it has done to the company was immeasurable. The physical damage it caused is the insurance’s problems but the damage to the company’s reputation is something the owner and the CEO would have to solve. This could have all been prevented had the security guards been trained how to act in this type of situation. The explosion could have been pre-empted if they had called off the authorities early on when they saw the bag. Further inquiry revealed the security guards that day were not professionally trained and were performing their jobs by maintaining the “routine.”
