A man from Logmozero, Karelia (North-West Russia), has used a 25 kg (57 lbs) aviation bomb from World War II as an anchor for his boat. His neighbours have contacted the police because they were scared of the possibility of being blown up accidentally. Police had to evacuate people from four houses situated nearby. The source from the Rescue Service, said that the bomb posed a real threat for people living in that village. If it explodes, the splinters can fly for over 500 metres (1600 ft.) from the epicenter. After the inspection, experts said that the bomb was in a working state and could be triggered by sudden actions. Instead of the detonator, there was a metal hook hammered in the bomb by the owner. He tied an anchor chain to this hook.
