BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Blind and visually impaired children in Bakersfield got a chance to participate in an Easter egg hunt this week, courtesy of the Police Department bomb squad.

The Bakersfield Californian (https://bit.ly/2oN5RNA) reports the bomb squad equipped plastic eggs with beeping devices so the children could find them by following the sound.

More than 20 kids, ages 3 through 13, searched for the eggs Thursday, with officers serving as guides.

The eggs were traded in for candy, popcorn and snow cones, and every child left with an Easter basket.
