Students played 'frisbee' with land mine

Two Swiss students on holiday played frisbee with an object they found on a beach unaware it was a live land mine.

Lukas Aider, 20, and Christoph Kurz, 19, took a plunge in the Danube river in Budapest when they found the mine and began their potentially lethal game.

A lifeguard watching stopped them and immediately called the police.

A bomb squad then arrived to make safe what turned out to be an old Soviet 6 kilogrammes anti-tank mine.

They’d have to have some good arms to play frisbee with something that heavy.

this story smells funny

6Kg is over 13 pounds. Have you ever tried to toss 13 pounds (like a frisbee or not?)

plus it is just too stupid. (not that that has hampered anyone in the past)

I want photos

6 kilogrammes? 6 X 2.2 = 13.2 pounds. How do you “frisbee” anything that heavy? Discus trainer, maybe.

If they had a Wham soundtrack going it could have been like a scene from Zoolander.

Sounds like fodder for the anti land mine crowd.
