Bombs away!


Two preteen girls went for a dip in Lobdell Lake in Genesee County, Michigan recently and as they waded into the water they felt a strange object underfoot – a practice bomb from World War I, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Parents were keeping a watchful eye and cautioned the kids to step away. They called in the local bomb squad who responded quickly and bravely drilled a hole into the projectile only to find that it contained lots of mud and posed no danger. They gave the historic find to the girls so that they would have a keepsake to “show and tell.”
