In the German town of Euskirchen, situated in North Rhine-Westphalia, a construction worker using a digger unearthed one of the many unexploded bombs that were dropped during World War Two. Sadly this one exploded, killing the driver and seriously injuring two of his colleagues. The blast blew out windows and caused damage to streets in the area as well.
According to the article in The Telegraph, the North Rhine-Westphalia’s interior ministry said it defused 706 bombs in 2012. Experts increasingly use Allies’ war-time aerial photographs to find unexploded bombs, although many are also uncovered accidentally during construction work.
I wonder if the poor driver’s family will get a pension?
