A 10-year-old girl made a startling discover on the beach at Coney Island while looking for seashells on Monday.

At around 1 p.m. the girl found a loaded gun buried in the sand. She immediately told her mom who then brought it to a lifeguard on duty. The lifeguard called the police, where they discovered a bullet loaded in the chamber of the 9 mm handgun.

Although no one was hurt, the incident has alarmed and disgruntled many beach-goers who now feel like they can't even enjoy the beach and feel good about their children playing.
