72 years have passed since the WWII came to its end, but symbols of the brutal have a tendency to linger. The bloodiest conflict in human history has left behind many weapons of war that are still harming innocents to this day. Some very unlucky construction workers are having to deal with that now after the discovery of a bomb.
The latest victims of WWII’s past are workers at a mass rapid transit construction site in Bandar, Malaysia where an aging bomb was uncovered. Unfortunately, no bomb squads could reach the location in time and the bomb exploded shortly after its discovery.
“Investigations have determined that it was caused by an old bomb from World War II… and the bomb exploded suddenly during construction work”
– Datuk Amar Singh (City Police Chief)
Three construction workers were caught in the blast suffering burns and some losing limbs. The victims were rushed to the hospital where one of them succumbed to his wounds. The identities of the men caught in the blast have yet to be revealed to the public, but our hearts go out to them and their families. This video clip provides additional information on the lingering effects of WWII bombs in the area.
