A possible military explosive training device washed ashore on a Florida beach early Sunday morning.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said a co-pilot on the patrol spotted the device on Lauderdale Marina Beach, 30 miles north of Miami, at 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
The sheriff said in a statement: “The BSO representative secured the area around the item and closed a small part of the beach.”
The word “inert” was written on the device, but “out of cautious consideration” at the site, the authorities called it the bomb squad and air force.
The sheriff’s office said, “make sure the mine is safe” and remove it from the beach, and then reopen the beach.
The source of the equipment is still unclear.
