MANILA, Philippines (UPI) -- One person was killed and 22 others were injured at a carnival in the Philippines when a live grenade was lobbed at a nearby house, officials said. Joseph Tumeldin, 19, died Monday night after the grenade exploded near the carnival at the recreational park in Poblacion Village near Carmen, North Cotabato, in the southern Philippines, Gulf News reported. The grenade initially hit the upper part of the house and then rolled to a group of people who were playing a coin-guessing game. Tumeldin was pronounced dead on arrival at the Kabacan Medical Specialist Center. Twenty-two other people were treated for shrapnel wounds. "The irate loser got hold of a grenade as he tried to look for the man who cheated him. When he saw the alleged cheater among those who were busy in a coin-guessing game, he lobbed the grenade and ran," the local police chief Jordaen Maribojo said.
