Suddenly a grenade goes off: A relic from the Second World War exploded on the Schopfgraben in Miesbach this Tuesday afternoon.
Nobody got hurt.
Damage to property is also not yet known.
The siren boomed twice over Miesbach after the police had received the alarm at around 2.15 p.m.
As the inspection reports, a rifle grenade from the Second World War had detonated at the Schopfgraben.
It is unclear what exactly triggered the explosive device.
According to the police, the grenade apparently exploded on its own.
The fact that the leftover from the war has now come to the surface is probably due to the construction work that has been going on in the area of Frauenschulstrasse for some time.
The canal will be renewed and the slope stabilization will be strengthened.
According to the police, construction work had recently also been carried out on the Schopfgraben below.
An excavator had apparently also carried the explosive to the surface.
The grenade was found in this area.

Although the grenade had already exploded, the demolition squad in Munich was also alerted and immediately went to the district town.
The Schopfgraben was closed until the experts arrived.
You should do further research.
Maybe it's not the only wartime explosive device there.
