British toddler finds live grenade during Easter egg hunt
A British 3-year-old found more than candy-filled plastic on his Easter egg hunt -- he stumbled upon a live hand grenade.
The boy was on a hunt organized by his pre-school in Holford, England, on Saturday when he found the weapon in a field, according to the Daily Mail.
"We were beginning to count up the eggs at the end of the hunt and I saw a boy of three standing on an object," said Stuart Moffatt, a parent attending the Stowey Bears Pre-School hunt with his wife and three children.
He added he was "shocked" and that the boy "thought is was a rock."
"It was brown and four inches high. It looked like an Easter egg, but it was a hand grenade," Moffatt said.
Explosive experts and police were called to the scene, closing the area and destroying the grenade in a controlled explosion, police told the Daily Mail.
The grenade was reportedly an artifact from World War II.
