Man finds live hand grenade in Pattaya area forest – VIDEO

Tanutam Thawan




A man found a live hand grenade under a tree in Pattaya area forest yesterday while he was searching in the woods for termites to later feed to his pet fish. Officers from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team say the M26 hand grenade is very dangerous and can still explode.

51 year old Su Supayut told Pattaya News reporters that fled the area when he saw the grenade and quickly called the police.

“I was searching for termites for my Betta fish before I found this grenade. I ran away before calling the police.”

Police do not know where the military-grade explosive came from and are still investigating.

    The insulation taping is significant. Taping down the trigger then pulling the pin allowed the grenade to be left in a solvent, generally the petrol in your tank. The solvent dissolves the tape the trigger lifts and it goes off. It was VC favourite

    It looks as if the idiots took it away in a police car.
    One bump in the road and bang.
    They should have shot it for being a suspicious grenade – from a suitable distance of course.

    Did that work in the 70s darwin, but for many years the tube down to the petrol tank had a U tube to prevent siphoning.

    Yes it did work in the 70s as the Landrover had a very wide delivery port. The thing was it could not be stopped it was going to blow no matter what. This grenade should have been strung out ie pulled to a safe place sand bags are good and you behind a tree with the very very long string in case she blew. It should the have been blown in place.
