Officials tell KDKA the grenade was found by a group of girls who pulled it out of the Shenango River while they were doing what is is called ‘magnetic fishing.’

‘Magnetic fishing’ is when people tie a rope onto a magnet and throw it into a river or creek.

The girls thought the grenade was fake, and brought it home.

Police came and safely removed the grenade.

No one was injured.
