Grenade from WWII Found in Yard, North Greece

grenadeA woman in Neo Souli in Serres, Greece found a grenade when digging in her yard. Yesterday evening, while the woman was removing some rocks from her yard, she grabbed the grenade thinking it was a rock or a turtle shell. When she realized that it was a grenade, she carefully placed it back where she found it and left the yard in order to go somewhere safer.
Greek authorities were alerted this morning and immediately set up an operation to diffuse the grenade. Men of the Greek police in Serres as well as ambulances and EMTs were found on scene, along with army bomb squad experts who removed the grenade from the house yard in Neo Souli and proceeded to diffuse it in an uninhabited area, away from the village.
“She was lucky that she did not pull the pin,” said the bomb squad technician, Chrysovalantis Dymenos, referring to the incident, noting that although it was made during World War II, the grenade was still active.
According to the deputy president of the region in Neo Souli, Stella Spanoudakis, this is the second grenade that has been found in the same yard. The first was spotted last year by the tenants of the house and was also diffused by bomb experts.
