On Sunday, a bomb disposal team in Germany came across a shocking revelation when they managed to defuse an unexploded World War II bomb successfully. This bomb had resulted in the evacuation of more than 18,500 people in the city of Ludwigshafen. The aerial bomb weighs 500-kilogramme that is equivalent to 1100 pounds was considered to be dropped out by American forces and was discovered during the construction work in the earlier week.
The official account of the city of Ludwigshafen said in their latest feed, "Good news: the bomb has been defused! Citizens may return to their homes,"
They also posted a picture of the freshly corded, unearthed bomb that was strapped to a pallet being removed from that specific area. The authorities located in the western city has ordered all the people that live within the distance of 1,000 meters or 0.6-mile radius of the bomb site to leave out their homes from 08:00 am that will be 0600 GMT as a precaution ahead of the diffusion of the bomb.
The bomb squad took more than an hour to successfully defuse the bomb since it was so delicately and complexly placed. They give the all-clear signal after 02:00 pm.
The shocking things that it is more than 70 years since the World War II and Germany are still littering on the remains of the unexploded ordnance that is taken up as a legacy of the intense Allied bombing campaign that occurs against Nazi Germany.
This will not be the first time that history was haunting the valleys. Last year, more than 60,000 resident of Frankfurt were asked to evacuate their location while the bomb defuses teams were working on the defusing the 1.8-tonne British bomb dubbed up as the blockbuster.
Even in April, thousands of people were asked to leave up their place surrounding the Berlin’s central railway station when the British bomb was discovered on the site of a building. This actually caused a panic state among people.
The unexploded munitions have to be the top reasons to make the work of the fire-fighters more difficult all the summers with the forest fires sparking up due to the hot and dry weather conditions. This has to be the main reason to set off the long-buried ordnance that results in causing small explosions on many occasions.
