Detonator on the Cot...

From 14WFIE (Evansville, IN) , emphasis added:

Three employees of the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center were hurt Tuesday when detonators they were unpacking detonated prematurely.

Base officials said the employees were treated initially at Crane's medical facility and were reported to be in stable condition. Local news reports said at least two employees were transferred to a Bloomington hospital. The injured workers' names and conditions were not immediately available.

When a fragment of a detonator was discovered on a cot used to transport one of the injured workers into the hospital, it prompted a partial evacuation of the emergency room out of fear it could lead to further injury. Crane is about 30 miles southwest of Bloomington.
