Three die playing catch with grenade

Post by Wolf »

BANJA LUKA, Bosnia (Reuters) - A hand grenade being used instead of a ball in a game of catch exploded early on Saturday killing three youths in this Bosnian town, police and news agencies said.

Two youths aged 19 and 20, one of them from neighboring Croatia, were killed instantly while a 20-year-old woman died on her way to hospital, police said. Her sister was slightly injured but two other youths suffered serious injuries.

The blast occurred at 2:00 a.m. in the western town of Novi Grad at a place in the town center frequented by youngsters. Police said an inquiry was under way and declined further comment. It was not clear why the grenade exploded.

ONASA news agency quoted witnesses as saying the youths tossed the hand grenade to each other before it exploded in the hands of one of them.

Bosnia is awash with illegal weapons left over from the 1992-95 war and tragic incidents are frequent despite several successful campaigns by international peacekeepers and police to get people to hand over illegal weapons.

It would also be different if they were grammar school children who didnt know better but these idiots were in their late teens, early twentys, growing up in a country that has been through a civil war in the last decade or so. These kids KNEW what grenades looked like and what they can do. I would say these kids should be nominated for the darwin award for 2005... they definitely stand out as runners up at least.

Yeah, really. I think the guy who wrote the article is equally stupid.

WHAT DID THEY THINK A GRENADE IS GOING TO DO? SPRAY PIXIE DUST AND JERK THEM OFF WHILE SHOWERING THEM IN CANDY?

Well, perhaps they found the pin still in the granade afterwards, so they couldn't see why it exploded.

You'd think that people that live with landmines and old shells blowing up in their backyards would know better.

Maybe if that is what is going on in their backyard they figure what's the difference?

its a scary place.... it is still littered with mines, un exploded ordinance... and explosives... on my tour there you could walk down the road and find a shell stuck in the ground or live ammo lying on the road... but its been cleaned up alot since the war

The really terrible part is it gets worse as it gets older. Last year some kids in Germany were killed by a 500 lb dropped in WW2. It had corroded enough that something met something and it went of. The kids were twenty five yards away with no clue it was there, just playing.

Ain't modern warfare cool?
