50lb Pipe Bomb Removed from St. Marys Parking Garage

By

Hundreds of people were nervous for about six hours on Thursday after it became known a fifty to sixty pound pipe bomb was sitting in a vehicle near Saint Marys Hospital. The car with the explosive was parked inside the Generose parking ramp at the hospital. It took the Bloomington bomb squad about two and a half hours to remove the bomb. "Have you ever seen anything like this?” asks the Reporter. "No, not in all the time I've worked at Mayo and I've been here for 21 years," says Melinda Hutchison who watched the scene briefly as she walked home from work. She and dozens of others around Saint Marys Hospital were surprised to see this scene outside.
