A sea training mine with a diameter of about 1.2 m appeared on Sunday night on the beach of the resort town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea in Florida. The local newspaper Sun-Sentinel reported this.
According to her information, a group of sappers arrived at the beach around 2: 30 local time and cordoned off a small section of it adjacent to the local hotel. According to the newspaper, although the shell of the mine was marked “inactive,” it could be used during military exercises, and there was a possibility that the explosive device was explosive.
After a survey by sappers and military personnel, the mine was handed over to representatives of the US Air Force, whose military base is located near the scene of the incident. At 10:45 local time, the beach was reopened to vacationers.
