Constance (dpa/lsw) - An angler
in Constance made a catch that was as surprising as it was dangerous: According to the police, on Sunday morning he fished a live World War II hand grenade out of Lake Constance from his canoe. She was therefore unexpectedly attached to his magnetic fishing rod. According to the local police headquarters, the angler immediately informed the officials via an emergency call. The water police then made their way to the site above the Old Rhine Bridge and blocked it until the explosive ordnance disposal service arrived. He finally disposed of the explosive device of French origin in a professional manner.
