A hand grenade, apparently from wartime, was found Thursday in the harbour of Lahti by two children were practicing magnet-fishing.

The explosive object was lifted from the bottom of the lake Vesijärvi by an 11-year-old boy attached to one of the magnet-fishing devices.

The finding was reported on Twitter by the Päijänne Tavastia Police Department (officially Päijät-Häme). Police officers quickly cordoned off and isolated the site.
