(KSL News) -- About ten patients at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center were evacuated this afternoon because of a bomb scare.

Patients in the CAT lab and critical unit were hustled out after a hospital worker noticed a brand new cooler left nearby at an outdoor park bench.

Provo police and bomb squad officers brought in a robot to remove the cooler. X-rays showed nothing harmful inside. Hospital representatives say their efforts in disaster preparedness paid off and they were able to handle the incident quickly and effectively.
