When you’re raking the autumn leaves, you expect to find a twig or two or maybe a candy wrapper. You don’t expect to find this.
On Sunday, a woman working in her yard in Smithfield, Rhode Island came across a hand grenade. She immediately alerted the local authorities, who immediately called on the Rhode Island State Bomb Squad. The Bomb Squad determined the grenade was live and removed it from the premises for transportation and safe detonation.
Yard work can be hard work, but it would certainly be a lot harder with grenades going off while you’re trying to rake. Boston.com has the rest of the story.
