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.
