I know the last time I was on a train in Boston a hand grenade went off. It was a blast.

So it was in Sweden the other day. Whatever it is, it is NOT terrorism. They authorities told us so.

The explosion occurred late on Sunday morning outside the Vårby Gård station, injuring a man in his sixties and a 45-year-old woman.

“There was something on the ground that the man picked up, and then it exploded,” Sven-Erik Olsson of the Stockholm police told the TT news agency.

The man died in hospital in the early afternoon, the police announced on their website.

Stockholm’s police force said the man was unlikely to have been purposely targeted by whoever left the explosive at the station. They added that there was nothing to suggest terrorism.

Police said they suspected the blast was caused by a hand grenade, but said it was too early to confirm.

Okay, maybe it’s really not terror-related. Here’s a hint: if you see a grenade on the ground, by a train or anywhere, then leave it there. Maybe run away…
