In downtown St. Louis this morning, authorities were dispatched to investigate a suspicious package left unattended near City Hall. Thanks to the advances of modern technology, a bomb-disposal robot was also sent to take a look at the potentially malicious item.

The robot was soon righted, and police cleared the scene, having found no threats. The bomb robot, which does not feel, tried its best.
