Early on Saturday evening, a magnetic fisherman found a World War II grenade at the steam pier in Utting, which was detonated on site by experts. But the joy of the find lasted only a short time, because the action has consequences for the teenager.
The 17-year-old from Utting was at the steam pier at around 5:45 p.m. with his girlfriend of the same age and went magnet fishing. During the very first cast, an object became stuck on his “fishing rod”. When the man from Utting pulled the object out of the water, he discovered that a World War II grenade had obviously become stuck on the magnet.
The Summerpark in Utting was closed while the grenade was detonated.
Several charges await the young man from Utting
