TWO mystery bomb alerts in Tuen Mun yesterday forced the evacuation of a kindergarten and a hospital. In the first of what appeared to be separate incidents, 25 teachers and 130 five and six-year-olds were forced to vacate the James Anglo-Chinese School Kindergarten after a parent spotted a suspicious object on a staircase leading to the school at 9.40am. The unidentified parent alerted staff, who called police to the second-floor kindergarten in Tsui Hong Circuit. The object, which was wrapped in adhesive tape, contained wires and had a flashing red light and timer. The kindergarten had been holding an end-of-year photo session for 130 senior-grade pupils, aged five and six. About 40 minutes later - and just 2.4km away - another bomb-like object was found by a cleaner in Tuen Mun Hospital on top of a payphone in a lift lobby on the ninth floor. It was covered in aluminium foil, wrapped in a plastic bag and also had some electrical wires. Police evacuated 110 people from the eighth and ninth floors, including 81 patients, visiting relatives and hospital staff. Neither package contained explosives. Bomb disposal experts exploded the object in the kindergarten but refused to clarify how they disposed of the one in the hospital. Kindergarten headmaster Mona Cho said: 'We immediately alerted the police and evacuated the pupils and the teachers to a nearby playground. 'It was an orderly evacuation; there was no panic.' Tuen Mun Hospital's public affairs officer, Eva Hui Hoi-chun, said: 'The staff helped to remove the patients. 'Many could walk, but some were in wheelchairs and some had to be transferred in beds.' Ms Hui described the evacuation as 'in order and very smooth'. The patients were allowed back around 1.45pm. The students and teachers returned to the kindergarten around noon and continued the photo session. Tuen Mun's District Crime Squad is investigating both cases and looking at reports that a man was seen walking down the staircase leading to the kindergarten shortly before the suspicious object was found. He has been described as about 35 to 40 years old, 1.63 to 1.65 metres tall and was wearing a light-coloured T-shirt and carrying a bag.
