Grandfather’s Relic Detonates Killing Son and Injuring Two Grandsons

A family from Indiana had an antique grenade from a family relic detonated last Saturday. Due to the explosion, the father, Mr. Bryan Niedert (47) was killed, and his two teenage children were injured. According to NBC News, the Lake County Coroner’s Office identified the victim’s identities, “injuries, manner, and cause of death are all pending,” in a statement on Sunday.

Mr. Niedert and his two kids found a hand grenade from Mr. Niedert’s father, who had long passed. The Lake County Sheriff’s Department responded to the home in the 3400 block of W. Lakeshore Drive around 6:30 p.m. for a reported explosion.  The father was unresponsive and was pronounced dead at the scene. The two teenage kids were transported to a local hospital with shrapnel wounds.

“Someone reportedly pulled the pin on the device, and it detonated,” Sheriff Oscar Martinez wrote in a statement. “ATF is supporting the Lake County Sheriff’s Department and other partners in their investigation,” Erik Longnecker of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said in a statement.

In 2021, A teen in VA bought a hand grenade in an antique shop in Shallotte, North Carolina, and he died two days before Christmas due to an unexpected grenade explosion.
