THURMONT, Md. — A groundskeeper at a McDonald’s in Maryland made a shocking discovery.

As he pulled up some bushes outside the restaurant, he noticed something metallic.

It was a hand grenade from the World War II era; and it was still live, with the pin left in it.

A bomb technician checked it out and removed it.

No one was hurt, and it’s not clear how long the grenade had been there.

A bomb and arson team will examine the site to determine whether there are any others.
