Grenade in the Face – level 2
An incident occurred in Colombia. A soldier accidentally activated a grenade launcher and threw a 40-millimetre grenade into another soldier’s face. The grenade was stuck inside the soldier’s face.
A helicopter could not move the soldier because the grenade could explode, so an ambulance transferred him in an eight-hour ride to Bogota. Doctors operated on him outside of hospital for safety, too.
The unusual operation was a success and the soldier is going to be fine.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
