Beach Cleaner Handles Dangerous Debris

Ypao Beach, Guam A volunteer picking up debris at the Gov. Joseph Flores Beach Park in Guam found something even more dangerous than the usual old nails and broken glass. He found an item which appeared to be a grenade. Not knowing what it was, he picked up the device and placed it at a nearby lifeguard tower.

The man continued with his beach cleanup before notifying authorities of the object which was later deemed a UXO. A portion of the Ypao Beach shoreline was evacuated for about an hour while emergency personnel and Navy EOD Mobile Unit 5 Detachment Marianas responded to secure the munition.
