Fail: Instructor sets off grenade during bomb squad training

Pull String Smoke Grenade

A instructor in the Philippines accidentally pulled the pin and set off a grenade during bomb squad training. I believe training should be realistic, but...
MANILA, Jan 22, 2011 (AFP) An instructor was teaching other officers how to handle explosive devices such as land mines and home-made bombs when the accident occurred Thursday on the southern island of Mindanao, said police spokesman Christian Carlitos.

"The instructor was demonstrating how to defuse a grenade when he accidentally pulled the safety pin," said Carlitos.
