When Science Experiments Trigger a Bomb Scare

science project, bomb scare
Bottle? Bomb? Bottle bomb?

A special unit of the Erie County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio was called to the Kalahari Resort after someone reported a suspicious package next to parked cars.

Members of a special bomb squad unit arrived at the water park and carefully approached the abandoned 2-liter bottle, which was all tricked out with foam and packing tape. Specialists discovered this at the center of the bottle:

An egg.

They quickly determined someone had abandoned their science project — creating a capsule which would protect an egg from breaking in a fall.

Good news for whomever decided the water slide was more important than sound engineering — the egg was unharmed! You get an A for most attention-getting capsule, too!

Ahhh. Science.
