Fishermen find grenade in local river, leading to bomb squad arrival and controlled explosion

Two men were fishing in a local canal when they happened to pull an unexploded grenade from the river. 

Friends behind the TikTok account @MagnetFishingEdinburgh found an interesting object while on a recent fishing occasion in early October.

The pair, who have almost 500,000 TikTok followers, told SWNS, the British news service, that they were on the Union Canal in Linlithgow, Scotland, doing some magnet fishing when they pulled a grenade out of the river.

This man, however, put the grenade in the trunk of his car — and drove to Taco Bell before calling 911. 

After the man alerted a bomb squad and evacuated the Taco Bell in Ocala, Florida, the grenade was removed and disposed of properly, according to the Ocala Police Department.
