ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) - A suspicious package at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport turned out to be something way less threatening than anticipated.

Passengers in and around concourse D were moved out of the area after a suspicious package was discovered unattended.

After some investigation, Atlanta police found that it was a pair of vibrating slippers inside the package.

There is no word yet on who they belonged to or why they were left behind.

The vibrating sounds from inside the bag is what caused the alarm.

The scene was quickly cleared afterward.
