Unwanted Bounding Box Problem

In the attached pic you can see two objects identified by the blue highlight, which happen to be duplicate images (I guess when I duplicated an artboard). They are surrounded by a bounding box but it's not possible to screenshot the bounding box. How can I break this box so that I can export this project without the mystery duplicate image appearing? 

 

I'm new at this so I have no idea how it occurred but it nevertheless did. I've seen others posting similar questions but it still wasn't clear to me how to fix the issue. Thank you!

I used dial-a-friend and, in my situation, her suggestion worked. I used the lasso to select only the desired artboard and then copied and pasted into a new AI project. Thanks Candace!
