An angler in Konstanz, Baden-Württemberg, made a catch that was as surprising as it was dangerous: According to the police, he fished a live World War II hand grenade out of Lake Constance from his canoe on Sunday morning.

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 and blocked it.

The ordnance disposal service finally disposed of the explosive device of French origin in a professional manner.

The water level on Lake Constance has been falling for weeks, and many boats are now stranded.
