Utah boy mowing the lawn runs into TNT canister
HOOPER, Utah (AP) - A 17-year-old Utah boy mowing the lawn at his home in Hooper ran into a canister of TNT that may date back as far as World War II. Taylor Wood was mowing the pasture behind the family home on Sunday and heard a thud. He then saw a canister that said "TNT shell" on the side.

His mother, Charise Wood, described the canister as looking like a small can of tomato paste. She quickly called emergency crews.
