    Kids picking up trash discover hand grenade

    HUDSON, Wis. - Three children picking up trash along a river in Hudson for community service work found much more than garbage. Charlie Thompson, 11, Maddie Roth, 10, and Demetri Roth, 8, came across a hand grenade, picked it up and headed home to show off their discovery.

    On their way back Monday, they ran into a neighbor, who immediately called 911. Hudson police cordoned off the block, then determined the grenade wasn't a danger, even though it still had the firing pin inserted. Sgt. Eric Atkinson says the grenade was rusted and contained no powder.........

    There are a lot of more entertaining ways this story could have went. Dammit ... just a boring Wednesday I guess.

    i would not know what i would do if i found a grenade. those kids probably didnt know what it was and good thing they didnt pull the pin (even with no powder, might go off)
