AMBRIDGE, Pa. - A dangerous discovery was made on Monday inside of a Beaver County home.
Officials said an unexploded mortar was found in the basement of the home on Beaver Road in Ambridge.
Lewis Krofchick said he stumbled upon it while he and his sister were going through his late father’s belongings.
He said his father served in World War II and was honorably discharged from the Army.
The bomb squad was called to the home to remove the shell.
“They said they’ll take it and X-ray it. If it’s live, they’ll explode it, and if not, they’ll destroy it," said Krofchick.
The family asked to keep it but wasn’t allowed.
