Man pulls Uzi submachine gun out of a pond with magnet and rope
A man experimenting with a magnet plucked a fully-loaded Uzi submachine gun and several other weapons out of a pond in Massachusetts, reports say.
The unnamed individual called the police after pulling the Uzi out of Pillings Pond in the small town of Lynnfield.
Lynnfield officer Patrick Curran inspected the submachine gun and discovered it was loaded, before encouraging the man to throw his powerful magnet – attached to the end of rope – back into the water to see what else he could find.
The magnet fisher pulled another four guns from the pond, including a Glock handgun, a Colt Cobra revolver, a semi-automatic handgun and a revolver with “significant corrosion”, according to The Boston Globe.
All five of the firearms were loaded, local police said.
