Mystery object removed from Rhode Island beach, still unclear what it is
It took almost an hour, but the large metal object was unearthed.
It's still unclear as to what it is.
A large excavator started digging at 10 a.m. in front of crowd close to 75 people, who were all eager to find out what it is.
The initial plan was to scoop sand surrounding the object in one piece, but it was so deep in the sand that it ended up being broken into pieces. The pieces were brought ashore and then taken to an undisclosed location.
