CRMC patients transferred due to bomb threat

Cullman Regional Medical Center patients and employees are now safely out of the hospital. The search continues in that hospital and two others in Marshall County following a called in bomb threat Sunday night.

SWAT teams are currently searching small spaces, like elevator shafts and maintenance rooms, at CRMC and Marshall Medical Centers South and North after someone called Cullman County 911 and made a bomb threat.

CRMC is the only hospital evacuated. A hospital spokesperson says 55 patients were transferred to nearby Woodland Health Care Center. Their families can call 256-255-0820 extension 126 for more information.

The Cullman Civic Center is also assisting with evacuations.

ABC 33/40 has crews in Cullman and will continue coverage beginning Monday morning on Good Morning Alabama.
