Bomb squad helps to make Easter egg hunt possible

Thanks to some cool technology, a visually impaired boy was able to find Easter eggs at an egg hunt this year. Saint Mariam Parish in Flourtown, Pennsylvania, got 50 beeping Easter eggs for their annual egg hunt with help from the local bomb squad!  They were part of a program from the International Associations of Bomb Technicians and Investigators that provides local bomb squads with electronic training and materials to create the beeping Easter eggs.

“I was listening to where they were and with daddy’s help I was really zoning in on them,” says eight-year-old Andrew Godwin. His dad, Andrew, agrees they had a blast, adding, “Being able to do the egg hunt independently as blind individuals was liberating.”
