It's not your average beach coming discovery.

A live phosphorus bomb was found in the sand near Fort Pierce on Sunday. It turned up at Blue Heron Beach, just south of Ocean Village.

The bomb is believed to be from World War Two. It was taken to the St. Lucie County Fire Department's South Beach station yesterday afternoon.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad was brought in to detonate and dispose of it. That was done last night.

The Sheriff's Office reminds people that even older bombs can be dangerous. If a bomb is found, they say to leave it alone and call 911.
