WWII Era Bomb Recovered In Keys

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — An inert Word War II era bomb has been recovered in the Florida Keys.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office reports that the device was recovered Sunday from the shoreline at the end of old Boca Chica Road, not far from a Naval air station.

A reserve bomb squad technician responded just after noon to a report that someone walking in the area had found the device. The bomb tech recovered it and determined it was no longer explosive.

The bomb was removed from the water and will be destroyed.
