“Grenade fishing” is something that you think you would only ever see in a movie.
However, as it turns out, grenade fishing is a real thing and a video from Ukraine showcased just how crazy this form of fishing really is.
In grenade fishing, the fisherman throws a grenade in the water in an attempt to kill as many fish as possible.
Conservative Tribune reports:
In the following video from 2015, some Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine display how to fish with grenades, though their “catch” at the end seemed rather meager given the trouble they went to in trying to get it.
In a different video shared by Wide Open Spaces and the U.K. Daily Mail, thought to be from Russia in 2012 and framed as an example of grenade fishing gone wrong, two men seen standing in an inflatable raft are nearly thrown overboard after a dropped grenade exploded prematurely upon impact with the water.
Both men were knocked down by the blast and much of the equipment in the boat was sent flying overboard, though the boat itself seemed to emerge from the incident relatively unscathed.
See that video below:
“Apparently this is from a shooting of the Expendables 2 movie. 1 Stunt man died and another guy is hospitalized,” said an update to the original LiveLeak post.
This is absolutely crazy. Share this story on social media if you would try grenade fishing.
